The Summer Reading Program for 2008 kicks off on Saturday June 21st from 10 am to 1 pm. Wild Reads at Your Library is this year’s theme. Registration begins for the Monkeying Around Read-to-me Club or the Wild Reads Reading Club. Face-painting, tattoos and crafts are all part of the fun for the entire family.
This summer, for the first time, adults and young adults are invited to join a summer reading club at Southworth Library. The theme this summer is “Wild Reads at the Dartmouth Library.” To participate, just fill out a short registration form at the library, pick up a punch card, and start reading. For every 30 minutes that you read, mark off an X on your punch card. When you have read for 6 hours and marked off all 12 Xs, print your name and phone number on the card and drop it into our Wild Reads container. Cards will be drawn from the container to award restaurant gift certificates to lucky summer readers. You may enter a card for every 6 hours of reading, including reading newspapers, magazines, cereal boxes, etc. Keep track of your reading this summer and the library may treat you to dinner!
