Reading program in full swing

 


The summer reading program is full swing at the Grand Coulee Public Library. It 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. 

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 from June 12 - August 15. The more you do, the more chances you have to win AMAZING prizes! You can sign up at: http://www.ncrl.org/summerreading.
