Children's Summer Reading Program
June 2 - August 2, 2014
At all W-TCPL locations & on the Bookmobile!
How the Program Works
Visit any W-TCPL location or the Bookmobile to register and get a reading log.
Children age 3 through those entering grade 6 can track time spent reading at home to earn prizes. Each child will receive a reading folder in which to keep track of time spent reading. Novels, comic books, popular series, nonfiction books - kids can read whatever is exciting, interesting, and fun! Kids who spend at least 12 hours reading will have the chance to win a cool science toy!
The Tadpole Club is for babies from birth to 35 months old. Parents and caregivers can share literacy-based activities with little ones to receive a prize, too!
