“Build a Better World” Summer Reading Club
Registration begins June 2 at 6:30 pm for our Summer Reading Club with our kick-off party with magician Al Mazing! Children will receive a sign-up prize! Registration is also ongoing throughout the summer. The program concludes on August 25 with our End of Summer Reading Celebration & BBQ.
NEW this summer: Children will earn tokens for time spent reading which can be entered into a charitable organization box of their choosing. Children will experience “giving back” just by reading while avoiding summer learning loss and increasing their reading and comprehension skills.
Come celebrate the end of summer with food, games, music, face painting and more...and it’s all FREE! No registration required.
