Library Board Trustee Ydo Yturralde Says It's Not Too Late to Join the Club!

Ydloleena YturraldeClub Read kicked off June 1 and already thousands of children and teens have signed up to read for fun, enjoy free programs and win prizes. It’s not too late to the join the fun, and it’s so easy!

Sign up online through our special Club Read web page. You can print out a reading log, or keep track of reading through the web page. You can also sign up at any Library District branch. Kids from birth through grade 5 have one reading log, and teens in grades 6 and up have another.

Kids and teens receive a Book Buck for every five books they read (or for pre-readers, for every five books that are read aloud to them.) The Book Buck can be exchanged for a book at any Foundation Used Bookstore at a Library District branch. After 20 books, the child or teen gets a special prize.

Weekly prize drawings include admission to Shark Reef, Madam Tussauds, the roller coaster at New York New York, baseball games, the Springs Preserve and lots more!

The program runs through August 3, 2013.

Meet Club Read Program Sponsor Cox Communications

For the last couple of years, Cox Communications has been a key supporter of Club Read, the Library District’s annual summer reading program that encourages kids and teens to keep their reading skills high over the summer by reading books, enjoying fun programs and earning prizes.

The Company’s commitment has helped the Library increase awareness of Club Read throughout Southern Nevada and encouraged even more children and teens to “join the Club!”

Cox believes that serving local needs and fostering improvements in education isn’t a charitable contribution, it’s an investment. The Library is grateful to Cox for recognizing the important work it does through initiatives like Club Read, and is proud the company has chosen to partner with the Library once again.

We’re fortunate to have Cox Communications in our community, a company that is widely lauded for its commitment to diversity and inclusion, and for its commitment to giving back to the communities it serves.
