POMEROY–Summer reading takes a wild approach for great summer fun and entertainment. The children program “Trails and Tails” begins with registration on June 9. The teen and adult program “Get Wild About Reading Bingo” registration is June 9 at 10 a.m.
This summer get wild about reading and join the Denny Ashby Library’s summer reading program, Tails and Tales! There is a version for everyone (children, teens, and adults). Registration begins June 9 and the program runs through August 26.
To participate, children who are pre-readers through incoming 6th graders set a goal for the number of books they plan to read (or have read to them) during the 11 weeks of summer vacation. Small prizes are awarded as progress is made toward reading goals. Those who complete their goals get a coupon for an ice-cream cone at Meyers and the opportunity to choose a book for the library’s collection. A bookplate is placed inside honoring their reading efforts.
Teen and adult participants play “Get Wild About Reading Bingo” for a chance to win one of four $50 cash prizes. Registration will kick-off June 9 at 10 a.m., and participants will have until the end of June to stop by the library and set their goals/pick up bingo cards.
