Readers of all ages, get ready for Summer Reading! Starting on Friday, June 10 and continuing through August 6, kids and adults can sign up to spend the summer reading books and winning prizes.

For adults, it’s ‘Summertime and the Reading is Easy.’  Participants can earn a prize (up to 3 prizes per person) for every five books they read as well as enter the grand prize drawings for a parachute hammock and three $25 gift certificates to The Bookman.  There will also be weekly drawings for $10 gift cards to local businesses.

Kids have the opportunity to sign up in the ‘Read-to-Me’ group, as an ‘Independent Reader,’ or for those entering 5th-12th grades, to participate in the Teens & Tweens (T2) group.  No matter which group they’re in, children, preschool through high school, can read or listen to books to fill their reading card.  When the card is turned in, they will get to choose a prize (one prize per week maximum) and enter the weekly drawings.

We also have fun programs and classes every week for kids of all ages during Summer Reading.  From yoga to the Science of Sports to meeting local professional soccer players to animals and magic, we’re excited to welcome kids to the library.  For a full listing of the programs, check out our calendar of events or download a summer reading brochure.

Summer Reading at SLDL is sponsored by the Friends of the Spring Lake District Library.  We look forward to Summer Reading throughout the long Michigan winter.  Are you ready?  On your mark, get set…read!
