Summer Reading for Children

Encourage your children from birth to 4th grade to read (or be read to) all summer long with game boards which earn prizes from a treasure box.  A completed game board will earn them new book! All entries are eligible for the grand prize drawings of a telescope or planetarium projector! Children’s prizes may be picked up starting June 1.
