The library is committed to supporting literacy with its annual Summer Reading Program. Students from 1st grade through middle school take on the challenge to read six books in six weeks. Each year, a special theme helps motivate readers as they make the commitment to pass up “screen time” in favor of books.
Our 2019 program was our most successful yet! Nearly 60 kids signed up, and 38 completed the challenge to read six books in six weeks. Our top reader read 29 books. All youth who completed the program earned fabulous prizes, including a gift certificate to In-N-Out Burger.
The theme, Readers are Leaders, was an unexpected hit. Each reader chose a leader to put on the board in order to track his or her progress. Children chose leaders from Malala Yousafzai, to Chuck Yeager, to Abraham Lincoln, to “Grandma.” We loved seeing not only the dedication to reading, but also the celebration of leaders from all walks of life.
