What is the Summer Reading Program for Children?

This summer, all across the United States, libraries will be providing reading programs for children in order to help them maintain and hopefully improve their reading and listening skills over the summer. Here at the David A. Howe Library, you and your child come to the library once each week (for 6 weeks) at any time or day we are open (10am-5pm).
When the child comes in, he spins the game wheel to see how many books to check out, picks out the books, and then spins the game wheel for prizes. If he comes at least 4 out of the 6 weeks, he can put his name in for the "big" prizes that will be on display. There
will also be various activities at scheduled times (story times, crafts, etc.) which will be listed in your information packet when you sign up.  This is a very popular program and spaces go quickly, so sign up early!
