Library’s summer reading program starts June 13

What’s Buzzin’ At Your Library!

That’s the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program at the Scott County Library’s seven branches. The program starts Monday, June 13, and running until Saturday, August 13.

Studies show that kids who don’t read regularly over the summer can actually read at a lower level when they return to school in the fall. The Scott County Libraries hate to see that happen, so we offer this reading incentive program for kids of all ages, separated into three groups:

Preschool program

This program is for kids who haven’t yet been to kindergarten. Sign up on June 13 or later, receive a reading record, take it home, and keep track of how many library books are read to you. Bring back records to receive a sticker for every 5 books you read and prize for each completed record (up to 3)

School-age program

This program is for kids who have finished kindergarten through 5th grade. Sign up June 13 or later and receive bookmarks. Take them home, and color in one track for every 20 minutes you read library materials (or have them read to you). Bring completed bookmarks back to the library for prizes:

• Bookmark 1: What’s Buzzin’ bookmark

• Bookmark 2: Old Country Buffet coupon

• Bookmark 3: What’s Buzzin’ plastic tote bag

• Bookmark 4: Papa Murphy’s mini-pizza coupon

• Bookmark 5: What’s Buzzin’ pencil

• Bookmark 6: Creepy Crawler stickers

• Bookmark 7: Spider eraser

• Bookmark 8: Local branch prize

• Bookmark 9: What’s Buzzin’ library card holder

• Bookmark 10: State Fair ticket

Teen program

The Tune in at Your Library Teen program is for kids who have finished 6th grade and up. Sign up June 13 or later and receive a flip pen. Win a READ wristband after reading 10 hours and a mini-radio after 20 hours. Enter prize drawings by writing quickie reviews.

All prizes are subject to availability. Alternate prizes may be substituted.

Special events

Along with great prizes and reading incentives, each library branch will feature fun programs and performers, including magicians, a yo-yo expert, authors and illustrators and more.
