Summer Reading is Almost Here!
June 4, 2012
It's nearly time to start your summer reading at the Livermore Public Library! No matter your age, there is a Summer Reading Program for you! Children who are independent readers can participate in the “Dream Big, Read!” 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 reading 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 programs, with the goal of reading, sharing what was read, and having fun! Sign up on the Library's website starting June 8. All programs run through August 11.
“Dream Big, Read!” is the theme of the 2012 Summer Reading Program for children who are independent readers ages four and over. The Summer Reading Program encourages children to improve their reading skills over the summer, while earning prizes along the way. Children can earn book charms to put on their lanyard as they progress through the program. Additional prizes will include swim, bowling, and rock climbing passes, coupons to a variety of Livermore food vendors, an Olympic-style medal and a presentation to the City Council as a Super Reader. As an added bonus, readers who bring in their lanyards from last year will receive two prize points toward their goal.
Younger pre-readers, including babies, can enroll in the Pre-Readers’ Program. In this program, parents and their children read together and receive points and stickers along the way. Those who complete the reader’s log win a special prize!
Complementing the Reading Programs will be a host of activities and entertainment—from storytimes and crafts to magicians, music and dance from a variety of cultures, cowgirls, wild animals, puppets, and performing dogs! These events are free and open to the public, but in order to participate in the reading programs and win prizes, registration is required. This year, you may register online beginning June 8 at http://www.livermorelibrary.net/, then come in to pick up your reading log and start reading!
Teens who love to win prizes are invited to join in the summer reading fun as well. Participants in the teen summer reading program are eligible to win a Barnes and Noble Nook, a Macy’s gift card, movie passes, or a Target gift card! Go online at http://www.livermorelibrary.net/ starting June 8 to register and begin recording the books you have read. For every two books you read, you receive a raffle ticket to put toward the raffle prize of your choice. Read 10 books and receive a small prize and an extra raffle ticket!
Don’t let the kids have all the fun! In addition to Summer Reading programs for children and teens, this year the Livermore Public Library will hold its fourth annual Summer Reading program for adults. Go online at http://www.livermorelibrary.net/ starting June 8 to register and begin listing your books and writing your comments about what you have read. For every three books you read, up to a maximum of 12, you will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a Barnes and Noble Nook, movie tickets, restaurant gift certificates, or a Target gift card!
