Description

Starting this month kids from toddlers to teens can join the popular Summer Reading Club at Central Library or any of the nine Pasadena Public Library branches. Summer Reading Club runs from June 19 to August 15. The program encourages students to read for pleasure and helps reluctant readers along by rewarding their reading efforts.

Kids, sixth grade and younger, will receive a book bag and a reading record to list all of the books they read or have read to them during the summer. They will be awarded a prize each week when they visit the library and share what books they've read or listened to that week.

In keeping with this year's Summer Reading Club theme for kids, Make A Splash This Summer, there will be a variety of entertaining programs and shows to spark kid's creativity and imagination all summer long. In July they'll be dazzled by the magical performance of "Illusions by Allen" and amused by the "Tales and Tunes" series featuring musicians Craig Newton and Carrie Higgins; storytellers Yvette Brandy and Flights of Fantasy and magic, comedy and juggling by Jeff the Great. To top it off in August the Pacific Animal Productions will display animals whose lives depend on water and animals that need no water at all!

For more information on Summer Reading Club for kids go to www.PasadenaPublicLibrary.net/librarykids.

The Summer Reading Club for kids is sponsored by the Friends of the Pasadena Public Library and the Southern California Library Cooperative.

Make Waves At Your Library, the Summer Reading Club for teens, will run from June 19 to August 20. Similar to the Summer Reading Club for kids teens read a book, fill out a prize drawing slip for each book they have read and place it in the decorated box at any Pasadena Public Library site.

Drawings for prizes with teen appeal are held each week.

Special programs for teens will be offered throughout the summer. These include the very popular Try It @ Your Library Teen Camps, which will be held in July and August. The camps covers a variety of topics including photography, design, comic book illustration, character design, magnadrawing, crafts, dance, magic, and robotics. These fill up quickly so register today! For more information on the Teen Summer Reading Club go to www.PasadenaPublicLibrary.net/libraryteens.

The Teen Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Friends of the Pasadena Public Library and the Rotary Club of Pasadena.
