Toddlers to 11 Years
Primary Reading Program
Reading over the summer helps kids maintain or even improve their reading skills. Every child, up to age 12, who reads a certain number of minutes or books by August 17 will receive a prize. Pick up a reading log from the Children's Area to track minutes of reading or books read, then bring it in when it's completed to select a prize. This year's prize reflects our "Build a Better World" theme. Let's all build a better world!
