Children (pre-school through 12th grade) are invited to join the 2013 Summer Reading Program “Dig Into READING!” at the Back Mountain Memorial Library beginning Wednesday, June 12.

Everyone receives a reading log to record the titles of books read over the summer. Participants earn prizes, take part in a weekly guessing game and are invited to many special programs throughout the summer. Pick up the schedule of special programs on the day you register.

Everyone who completes the program by reading eight books, or 1200 pages for teens, will receive a certificate and a grand prize and be invited to a final party with rewards, fun, food and entertainment.

Why is summer reading so valuable to children and teens? Summer reading improves reading skills, develops positive attitudes about reading, encourages library use, motivates families to read together, allows freedom of choice of books and library media and provides an opportunity to make friends and meet your neighbors!

So come into the library anytime beginning June 12 to register for a summer of reading fun. Stay a while longer and decorate a bookworm to hang in the library.

For more information, call the library at 675-1182.
