Warm weather is here and that means it is time for the Summer Reading Program at the library.
Children from birth through age four are invited to be part of the “Little Readers” program with a special reading record created just for them. Not only are there plenty of opportunities to read together, but there are also numerous simple activities for you and your child to do together that promote pre-reading skills. As you complete the activities you are earning a chance to pick out a new book to keep when you visit the EPL Summer Reading Bookstore in August. Complete rules and reading records will be available in the Children’s Library starting on June 16th. Children entering kindergarten will be part of the regular summer reading program and keep track of time spent reading (or being read to) on their own reading record.
The program starts June 16th and ends on August 2nd.
