Fizz, Boom, Read! Summer Reading Program
June 23—August 8, 2014
How does it work? All you have to do is sign up beginning June 23. You will receive a reading log and a bookmark. Keep track of the library books you have read, or your time spent reading, in your reading log and bring it with you when you visit the library. Each week that you visit the library, you’ll receive a reading incentive and raffle tickets for wonderful prizes. Raffle winners will be announced on Monday mornings.
