Children's Summer Reading Program
June 1 - August 1, 2015
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 will each receive a reading and learning folder in which to keep track of time spent reading at home. The more a child reads, the more opportunity he or she has to earn prizes. Additional prizes may be earned by completing various learning activities on the back of the folder. Stop by any library location and register for the Children's Summer Reading Program to receive a reading log.
The Tadpole Club - Children from birth to age 3 can participate in a Summer Reading Program just for them. Parents or caregivers can share literacy-based activities with young children and receive a prize especially for the little one. Stop by any library location and register for the Tadpole Club to receive an activity folder.
