Heroes is the focus for summer reading


This summer, at the Grand Coulee Public Library, the summer readign program will focus on the many types of heroes there are. The heroes of all ages who walk through the doors of the library each day; the heroes who have made their marks on history; the heroes who keep our communities safe, clean and productive; and high-profile superheroes.

The Summer Reading Program is for children of all ages, 0-18. Sign up is free. There are activities, great programs, prizes from books to ice cream and incentives - plus it is free and fun. 

The library shelves are full of outstanding fiction and non-fiction books about heroes of all kinds. From the youngest child to the strongest, mightiest crusader, each and every hero has his oor her own story to tell.

All children have the potential to be heroes through words and actions; children are encouraged to discover the superheroes within themselves as they dress up, explore art projects and games, complete a variety of feats and deeds, and  - of course - read! 

Parents or older siblings can be Reading Partners. The importance of reading aloud to children of all ages cannot be stressed enough, even for children who can read on their own. There are great benefits to be gained from reading aloud. Instilling a love of reading in your child, sharing more difficult books that your child may not be able to read alone, encouraging reluctant readers, and increasing family involvement through the sharing of good books, etc.

Teens can sign up for the Teen Summer Reading Program online. They will read and complete cool library challenges all summer long! It runs now through August 15. The more you do, the more chances you have to win AMAZING prizes! You can sign up at:
