Summer Reading Begins!
Summer Reading Signups start today! The Summer Reading Program encourages families with kids of all ages to read during the summer. Participants are given a chance to pledge how much time they would like to read each day when they sign up. The suggested time is 20 minutes a day, but you can read more! Read on your own, have someone read to you, or listen to an audio book—it all counts! Small prizes are awarded each week to children who reach their reading goal. Registration is open anytime between today, June 22, 2010 and July 24th. Children who are visiting Falmouth are warmly invited to join in. Sign up at the Main Library or at the East Falmouth or North Falmouth Branches. (Participants also get to write their names on leaves and put them on our lovely tree. By the end of the summer we hope it will be fully leafed out.You’ll of course want to pop in to help us out!)
Come down to the library to grab a copy of the summer reading brochure for the schedule for Special Tuesday Programs, Wednesday afternoon craft days, book groups, pajama story times, and all the rest of the summer fun. Young Adult activities are also listed in the brochure, so get your copy today.
Our first program is Tuesday June 29th at 3pm. It’s called “Hats Off to Reading,” stars Keith Michael Johnson, and is sure to be a raucous good time. See you there!
