Children & Teens: New Ways to Dig into Reading

Administrator : May 21, 2013 2:42 pm : Elkhart Public Library, Kids, Teens

This year’s Summer Reading Program is all new and exciting! Children will track minutes instead of titles, and teens get to explore different reading genres.  

Dig into Reading

Dig into Reading (children, ages 0-12)

If you have taken part in our Summer Reading Program before, be ready for a change. This year all you have to do is read at least fifteen minutes a day for four days and do two other activities to earn a prize. The activities are fun and simple, like checking out a book at the Library or drawing a picture about summer. When you sign up, you will receive a reading log to keep track of how many minutes you read. The best part of the new program is that you can earn a prize every week! For every reading log you turn in, you win a small prize. When you fill up three logs, you win a book. Complete all eight reading logs and you get another book.

There will also be a grand prize drawing. For each reading log you turn in, you get an entry into the drawing. We have five bicycles to give away to five lucky readers!

Beneath the Surface

Beneath the Surface (teens, ages 12 and up)

Teens, when you sign up, you get a Bingo Card to fill in. There are different genres of books to read and various reading and library-related activities on the card.  For each row you fill, you earn a prize. For the teen grand prize drawing we will give away a Kindle Fire and a Nook Color.

Summer Reading runs from June 1 to July 27. Prizes can be claimed through August 3.

 

“Underground” Activities

SRP-02

As always, we have plenty of theme-related summer fun lined up.

Kids can look forward to a visit from Silly Safaris and their wild animal show, a Pirates and Treasure program, Digging for Dinosaur Bones and more, including our traditional end-of-summer Ice Cream Social!
