It’s that time of year… It’s getting hotter, school is winding down, and the library is preparing for the crazy awesome time that is Summer Reading. I’m really excited for this year’s Summer Reading Program. Oh, did I say program? I meant to say Programs. Plural. Because this year, we’re have three.
First of all, of course, is the Children’s Summer Reading Program: Park it AND Read. This summer, read to earn your chances for prizes and check out sports equipment in the Children’s room to have some fun outdoors. Come visit us at the park for fun activities, including the Summer Reading Kick-Off on Monday, June 6 from 2-4. The reading program runs through July 30. Contact the Children’s Department for more details.
Teens get to have a Summer of Awesome this year with great weekly teen events, a Teen Lock-In, and their own Teen Reading Program. Starting June 6, Teens can start earning tickets for each hour that they read, up to four a week. Teens can earn extra tickets by participating in special activities in the teen area. This program runs through August 21. Contact Teen Librarian Liz Strauss for more information.
Finally, for the first time ever, the Dover Public Library is hosting an Adult Summer Reading Program: Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer Reading. Starting June 6 and going through July 30, each time you check out a book you will earn a ticket for the Summer Fun Package. So come to the library and check out all your favorite books and audio books. Magazines, DVDs and CDs do not count. Just books. It is a summer reading program, after all. Contact Paula Fawcett at the Circ Desk with any questions.
It’s going to be a very busy summer at the library! I hope you all join us! This year, there’s no excuses: there’s a reading program for everyone here.
