Library Board Vice Chair Michael Saunders Invites Kids and Teens to Join the Club This Summer!

Michael SaundersThe Library’s free Club Read program starts June 1 through August 2. Children and teens can have fun reading, enjoy special programs and win prizes too.
 
Club Read is a celebration of reading for children who read at all levels, even pre-readers who are still being read to. And joining Club Read has another benefit besides being fun—kids who read during the summer retain the reading skills they achieved during the school year, and go back to school in the fall ready to learn and succeed. It’s easy to participate, it’s fun and it’s free!
 
The Library has many free programs and activities planned as part of Club Read. You can learn more about the program below, or on our website.
 
Join the club this summer!

The Library District was awarded the Medal for its efforts to align its programs and services to meet the needs of a community devastated by the Great Recession.

Ms. Goodrich was accompanied by community member Avree Walker, who exemplifies how the Library's efforts make a difference in people's lives. Also attending the ceremony was Library Board Chair Keiba Crear.
