Summer Reading Club features incentives for kids who keep track of their reading over the summer, with prizes earned when they hit certain reading milestones. Thousands of reading hours have been logged in each previous summer and community partnerships are a huge reason why the program is so successful. Many local businesses contribute by donating coupons and freebies that serve as prizes for successful readers.
This fun-filled program combines art with creative writing, and allows the participants the chance to create original works of art and expression. Each week the program will focus on a different style of prose or poetry, with complimentary artwork. This flexibility allows the participants to attend one, or attend them all. Kids will play games and respond to writing prompts designed to spark their creativity. They will also create their own writer’s notebook, as well as complete several other creative projects throughout the course of the program.
