Registration for the 2012 Summer Reading Program begins June 25 at the Orcas Island Public Library. The program runs until Aug. 19 and is open to children from preschool through middle school. Parents of preschoolers are encouraged to enroll their children and read aloud with them as part of the reading program.
Children keep a reading log and earn “Library Dollars” which can be used to buy books from the “store” at the library. Kids who have their log checked at the library will be entered in a weekly drawing for a bag of goodies.
Summer activities also include a weekly chapter book read-aloud hour on Tuesdays, 1:30-2:30 p.m., for ages six to 10, and two Pajama Story Times. Thursday morning story times will be expanded to 9:30-10:30 a.m. with music, stories, and craft activities.
The grand finale for the summer program will be enjoying the Orcas Chamber Music Festival’s free concert on Aug. 19 at the Village Green.
Kids are also invited to walk with the library’s summer reading entry in the parade on July 7.
