Summer Reading is here!!! You can sign up anytime between May 28th & July 31st! We have programs for all ages. Adults will complete book review cards and be entered into the prize drawing (the big prize is a Kindle Fire). Again this year for each card returned is a dollar match (up to $500) going to the library. We will purchase a charging station with the donation.
Teens (those who have completed 6th grade through those who have completed 12th grade) will keep track of their hours and earn coupons, after every 10 hrs of reading they get entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card (6) or a $100 Visa gift card. Huge thank you to Cyber Solutions for sponsoring both the Adults and Teens Programs.
The kid's program is for those who have completed Kindergarten through those who have completed 5th grade. They will receive a variety of coupons from local businesses, such as Fiss’, Fareway, and Subway.
New this year is an Early Literacy program; this is for infants-PreK kids, parents will help kids complete various activities like reading, singing nursery rhymes, naming colors, and drawing. Every individual who completes the early literacy, Kids, or Teens program tracking sheets will receive a free book. The more sheets completed, the more free books you get!
Huge thank you to all of our sponsors who make the Summer Reading Program possible every year: Blank Park Zoo, Carlisle Citizen, Carlisle Parks & Rec, Cyber Solutions, Fareway, Fiss’, the Friends of the Carlisle Public Library, General Mills, Goodhue-Nolte Insurance, Johnny & Mike’s, Optometric Associates of Warren County, Subway, and Warren County Extension Office.
