Summer Reading Club



Summer Reading Club 2017

What is Summer Reading Club?

  



Our Summer Reading Club encourages kids to keep reading throughout the summer and is a way for them to have tons of fun! It is a FREE program for children 0-18 years old which begins the second week in June and ends the last week in July! It all begins with a Kick-Off Party on the Library Plaza, where we will have fun foam, a bouncy house, DJ, popcorn and ice cream, sidewalk chalk, and lots more. All summer long, there are fun activities for families to do – check out the schedule below! Complete your weekly reading goal & visit the Library each week with your reading log to receive a prize! At the end of July, we will have a big End Party at the Broughton Splash Pad to celebrate all you have accomplished with bouncy houses, a DJ, nachos and even drawings for free bikes! To register for the Summer Reading Club come to the Children’s Department at the Longview Public Library or register online! It's quick and easy to do, and you don't even have to have to own a Library card. Sign-up begins Monday, May 1st and ends the last week in July.
