The Summer Reading Program Is Here!

Paws to Read is our 2014 summer reading program (not to be confused with our Paws for Reading program, which is our dog program on Saturdays).

Kids can read any library book they want, no required titles or quizzes, just keep track of the time you read. Record the time on your reading log and turn it in when you have read five hours. Reading logs can be picked up at the library or downloaded from our website. Each time you turn in a reading log, you get to pick a prize AND get a ticket for a chance to win a remote-controlled robot! The more you read, the more prizes and chances you get.

The Children’s program is for 5th grade and under. Hours are counted for being read to as well as reading, so older siblings can read to younger siblings and both can add the time to their reading logs.

The Teen program is for 6th grade and up. Teens can also volunteer during the summer and add their volunteer hours.

Not to be left out, we also have Summer Reading for Adults, starting on Sunday, June 15. It will last for six weeks and include six weekly drawings and a final, grand prize drawing. The grand prize will be an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (weekly prizes are still TBD).

Patrons can enter once per week online at tiny.cc/fostersrp (the form is not currently active, but will be later!). Entering is simple: patrons tell us the name of a book they’ve read and give us their contact info. To be eligible, entrants must be 18 years of age or older with a valid library card.

Check our website for the Kick-off Show’s dates and times, presented by the Reptile Family. Please be sure to check our website for E.P. Foster’s weekly programs sponsored by the Friends of the Library. All programs are free!
