Placer Library Offers Summer Reading Program

June 23, 2010

Bored? Hot? Summer reading fun for all ages has begun and runs through August 15. Please join the staff of the Placer County Library as they offer their annual Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is “Make a Splash-READ!

School-aged and teen readers are encouraged to set a summer reading goal at their local library with their librarian. After readers have completed half their goal they select a prize. When the goal is completed another prize is awarded. Readers are encouraged to decorate their reading logs, to list their books read, and to talk about their books with library staff. Pre-schoolers can also participate by listening to books and collecting stickers.


From June through August 15, special programs related to the Summer Reading theme will be offered in all the libraries during open hours and includes crafts, reading games, puzzles, and art projects. All Library programming is FREE and includes all materials.


Thirty six performers in eleven libraries are scheduled with Wild Things available at every branch. Home grown programs include ice cream socials, game days, a book bag decorating party and altered books for teens (discarded books are used for craft materials.) All performances are FREE, but space may be limited so contact the library for specifics.

Mary George, Assistant Director of Library Services says, “If you have a young reader in your life please encourage them to participate in this year’s Summer Reading Program. I am so proud of all the library staff for their
efforts and can guarantee that there will be something fun for everyone. Please check us out soon.”
