. . . And A Wonderful Way To Enjoy The Summer!
Pasadena, CA — Join us for an amazing array of fun and FREE things for children and teens to do this summer at the library! Visit your neighborhood Pasadena Public Library this June to sign up for Summer Reading Club and keep your child's reading skills up this summer. Participation in a summer reading program helps generate interest in reading and books, encourages reluctant readers to participate through fun shows and activities, and inspires lifelong learning. The program runs through August 4. This year's theme "Reading is Sooooo Delicious" features a variety of free shows, storytimes and activities for children and free programs and activities for teens.
Children 12 and younger will receive a free summer reading starter kit complete with reading log, bookmark and book bag when they sign up for the Summer Reading Club. By using the reading log to record the books they read or that were read to them throughout the summer they will receive reading incentives; stickers for each library visit and a special prize on their 3rd and 5th visits (while supplies last).
Children are also encouraged to draw a picture or write about the book they've read. Exceptional entries will be posted on the library's digital photo frames. For more information visit http://www.cityofpasadena.net/library/kids/events_and_programs/2013_summer_reading_club.
Teens in grades 7 to 12 can win prizes this summer at the library just by reading a book, magazine, graphic novel, or audio book then filling out a prize entry slip at any Pasadena Public Library site. If the teen's name is pulled in the weekly drawing, they win a prize! Drawings begin June 17. All entries are automatically entered in the end-of-summer drawing for a Nook Color!
