With a theme like “A Universe of Stories,” we guarantee this year’s Summer Reading Program is going to be out of this world! Ages birth through adult are invited to sign up for our children, teen, or adult programs starting Saturday, June 15!
The program runs for 8 weeks (June 15-August 10), with opportunities to enter raffles and win prizes along the way. Children who complete 18 hours of reading and 8 activities from a given list will win a custom designed t-shirt and a free book, and teens who complete 18 hours of reading and 8 activities will win a book, as well as weekly scratch tickets for prizes throughout the summer! Adults can strive to be “Star Readers” this year, by entering a weekly raffle for each week they finish a book, and will also be eligible for a grand prize drawing at the end of the summer.
In addition to the Summer Reading Program, we will offer a number of special events throughout the summer months for all ages! From a book launch and rocket building event with Anna Redding, to juggling with Michael Menes, or even a special space-themed Mad Science show, there are plenty of programs to keep you having fun all summer long! Check our events calendar or Facebook page often for the most up-to-date information on summer programming.
The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Friends of the South Portland Public Library. For more information, call 767-7660.
