Registration begins Thursday, June 1, for AAPLD’s 2017 Summer Reading Program “Reading by Design.” Children, teens and adults are invited to participate as we build on strong foundation of summer reading in our community.
Adults, you can design your own reading challenge (read a book a week? try a new genre? read 10 books? ). Receive a reward for every book read, up to 3 books:
- Book #1 = Kona Ice coupon;
- Book #2 = SRP T-shirt for 1st 300 readers;
- Book #3 = an entry in our grand prize drawing
Fill out a “Book Brick” for every book read and we’ll add it to our displays at both libraries. Let’s see if adult readers can read 1,000 books this summer! Adults can also complete up to 5 book reviews for additional entries in our prize drawings for an Algonquin Commons gift card and more!
Teens, you’ll get a free book for registering for summer reading. Be sure to complete reading challenges and attend events to earn Book Bucks, which are used to enter drawings for cool prizes. After you complete four challenges on the book log, you’ll receive a summer reading T-shirt!
Kids, you’ll receive a small prize when you register. Bring home your book log and complete reading challenges and/or activities to fill in the “bricks” on your log. Be sure to pick up your prizes at the library once you get to the 1/3- and 2/3- mark. Once you complete your log, come to library and get your T-shirt and book!
Our special summer events include Design Day at the Harnish Main Library on Saturday, June 3, complete with a Touch-A-Truck display, crafting stations, and Mario’s Kart Food Truck in the from 11am-2pm. The LEGO Outdoor Movie on July 25, the End-of-Summer-Reading Party and Fox Tails Storytelling Festival on July 31, and National Night Out on August 1. More details in the June/July issue of the AAPLD Program/Event Guide coming to mailboxes by May 31.
We’ve designed a great summer for you, one that can move children forward in their reading skills, provide teens with interesting experiences, and allow “mature” readers to stretch and grow!
