Summer Reading Program 2014

Youth Calendar of Events

Saturday, June 14thmarks the start of this year's Summer Reading Program at your local San Luis Obispo County Library. Children and teens are all welcome to sign up to earn fabulous rewards for reading library books. Studies show that kids who continue to read throughout their summer breaks retain and maintain the skills learned in the classroom far better than those who don't. Keeping the habit of weekly visits to the library can also keep them in the loop with friends and other families as they all gravitate to the heart of their communities!

Fizz Boom Read @ Your Library is the theme for children from toddlers up to fifth grade, and even babies can "earn" a board book this summer. Children who are lap readers, having books read to them, and beginning readers will read 20 books to complete their book logs. Teens and children who are chapter book readers will finish with 10 books. The rewards are fabulous! Not only do they have the pleasure of wonderful books, they will receive a beautiful canvas book bag from Cloud Star featuring local artists, a book of their own, and coupons from local businesses who love to support children's literacy!

Teens who read and Spark a Reaction will have the added incentive of entering a raffle for an iPod Touch as well as other fun prizes! This year we will have Reading Logs available to print on our website as well as in person, just bring the completed log to your local branch Library for your rewards. Keep checking slolibrary.org throughout the year for updates on all things wonderful at the Library and where you can search the collection, put holds on items and even renew materials from home. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook: San Luis Obispo County Library and keep up on posts about new books, movies and programs countywide since some Libraries will continue their regular Preschool and Toddler StoryTimes, as well as some teen & tween crafts (These will require pre-registration due to limited space and hands on opportunities, so be sure to call your local library.)

Please take the 2014 Summer Reading Program Survey once you have completed the 2014 Summer Reading Program. This survey will tell us what you liked about this year's program and help us improve the Summer Reading Program for the following year. Thank you!
