The theme of the 2013 Summer Reading Program is "Dig Into Reading"! Preschoolers and children ages through 12 are encouraged to participate in the Summer Reading Program. Preschoolers can participate in the "Read to-Me" program. A parent or caregiver reads aloud to the child and records what's been read. This introduces the "summer reading" concept to young children and encourages parents to participate. Registration for the 2013 Summer Reading Program will take place at the Library starting Sat., June 22nd through Sat., June 29th.The Library will host a SRP Kick-off Party on Saturday (6/22), featuring a treasure hunt and pirate movie, starting at 10:30 a.m. Call for more infor- mation.
