Free Summer Reading Program
The Prescott Library's FREE Summer Reading Program begins the week of
June 11th. The theme this year is: Paws, Claws, Scales, and Tales!
The goal of the program is to keep children reading throughout the
summer by offering incentives and prizes for meeting reading goals.
Registering for this program is free, and when kids meet their reading
goal - they win a free book! Other prizes are offered when you sign
up, and at each program!
Programs are divided by age group this year:
Young Children/Toddlers (or anyone who wants to come!)
Storytimes every Thursday at 2 p.m. starting June 15th and ending July
27th. Two stories will be read and an easy craft will be presented.
Young children must be accompanied by an adult or an older sibling.
The program will last 15 to 20 minutes. Pick up a schedule of
storytimes, including weekly themes and craft information, at the
***Parents - if a different time of day works better for you, or you
would like storytimes throughout the year - let Josh at the library
Grade School Age Kids (Kindergarten through Middle School)
Kids in this age range can sign up and pledge to read 10 hours this
summer. For each 10 hours they read they will get a free book. Most
events for grade schooler's are Tuesdays at 2pm. Programs include:
transforming the library into a jungle for the summer, a visit from
the Blue Mountain Humane Society, live lizards visit the library,
making animals out of paper mache, and an end of the summer party! A
full schedule is available at the library.
The library is offering a self guided program for teens - Read Three,
Write Three, Get One Free! Teens can pick up a reading log and pledge
to read three books and write three book reviews. For each three book
reviews they turn in - they get a free book! Teens may also attend
any of the grade school programs or volunteer to help out with the
younger kids. There is the possibility of teens putting together a
puppet show for the younger kids. If you are interested, come to
library and we will make it happen!
