Summer Reading Challenge

Have you signed up for the  summer reading challenge, yet? If you have, great! If you have not, what are you waiting for? We have made the program so simple this year–the only thing you your child has to do is read!

If you have children birth to age 18, stop by one of your favorite Stark County District Library locations to sign up, and you’ll receive a map. Your child can mark on the map every day spent reading. There are categories for children birth to age 5 (read to me), age 5 through grade 5 (children), and grade 6 through grade 12 (teens).

For every five days read, make sure to bring your map back to the library to receive a coupon to a local restaurant like Chipotle, McDonald’s, Taggart’s, Chik-Fil-A, and Wendy’s–teens have other coupon choices as well! Once you reach 40 days read, you’ll receive a book and a coupon along with an entry into our grand prize drawing. If your child reaches 50 days read during the summer, she will receive a bonus book and coupon along with a second entry into the grand prize drawing. To add to the excitement of summer reading, anyone who registers and participates in the program will also have the opportunity to walk in the kick-off Hall of Fame Community Parade.  

This year, our theme is Fizz! Boom! Read! If you aren’t from Stark County, your local library may be doing the same theme (it’s a collaborative summer program). What does that mean? Many of our programs are themed around science and hands on activities this year. (I would definitely recommend visiting the Artful Science program–there’s bubbling glitter!)

Parents, don’t let your child fall behind this summer…keep reading every day to help them stay ahead when school starts.
