Summer Reading for All Ages

August 16, 2014

Summer reading is for everyone at the Livermore Public Library!  Children reading independently can participate in the 2014 Summer Reading Program while pre-readers are invited to take part in a special reading program designed just for them. Teens entering grades 6-12 can participate in the teen program where they can earn raffle tickets and enter to win exciting prizes. Even adults can join in with a program tailored just for them. Prizes will be awarded in all reading programs, with the goal of reading, sharing what was read, and having fun! Sign up and start tracking your reading on the Livermore Public Library’s website, 2014 Summer Reading Program starting June 1. All Summer Reading Programs end on August 16. Summer library storytimes, performances, events and activities continue through August 15.

The Summer Reading Program encourages children to improve their reading skills over the summer, while earning prizes along the way. Independent readers who reach the final reading goal will also receive an Olympic-style medal and an invitation to attend a special City Council Meeting as a Super Reader…and shake hands with Mayor Marchand and the City Council!

Younger pre-readers, including babies, can enroll in the Pre-Readers’ Program. In this Program, parents and their children read together and those who complete the program win a special prize!
Complementing the Reading Programs will be a host of activities and entertainment—from storytimes and crafts to music and dance from a variety of cultures, including clowns, wild animals, puppets, storytellers, a magician and more! All events are free and open to the public, but registration is required to participate in the reading programs and win prizes. This year, you may register and begin tracking your reading online beginning June 1st at 2014 Summer Reading Program.
