We've revamped our Summer Reading program and we think you are really going to like it! The first change is that we are partnering with Boone County Schools to make summer reading fun and educational for kids and easy for parents. BCPL staff are working with teachers to register elementary students in Boone County Schools before school even gets out. Another major change is that we have combined our baby's, toddler's, children's and teen's reading programs into one Youth Program for birth to 17 years. As usual, all youth earn a book after they have completed their first five hours of reading. After ten hours of reading, they earn an entry in the Grand Prize drawing for a tablet and they can choose their second prize: a superhero cape, a double-walled tumbler with straw, or five Library Bucks.* The Adult program remains the same. Everything you read, watch or listen to earns one Library Buck,* one entry into weekly drawings for prizes and one entry in the Adult Grand Prize drawing for a tablet. Receive a free Library card holder just for registering! Register at beginning May 9 or stop by any Library location for a paper reading log. Summer Reading ends August 28 and the last day to pick up prizes is September 15. Boone County Summer Reading 2015 What's Your Superpower? Carnival of Cultures @ the Florence Branch Pick up a free limited edition Tales superhero button at any BCPL location beginning May 9. *Library Bucks can be used at Library book sales and to pay Library fines.
