Kick off Summer Reading Program at the Klamath County Library!

Downtown Klamath County Library
Libraries RockTM! Kick off Summer Reading Program with us Monday, June 18th at 10:30 am at the downtown Klamath County Library.
The whole family can earn rewards for reading! At the kickoff party, we’ll give out “passports” to track your summer reading. Each passport has music notes to color in as you read or work on early literacy skills. For each milestone you pass, you earn a prize! (Can’t make it to the kickoff? Pick up your passport at the Youth Services desk starting June 18th.)
Children ages 0-5 years can earn prizes by working on early literacy skills with their grown-ups. You can develop these skills by bringing your little ones to library storytime events, singing nursery rhymes, playing make-believe, working on forming letters, reading together as a family, and telling stories. Color in a music note on your passport for every 30 minutes you spend working on these skills; every 10 notes earns an early-reader prize.
Readers in kindergarten through 6th grade work through their passport by recording every 30 minutes they spend reading. Teens in 7th through 12th grade will track their reading in units of 1 hour. (And all sorts of reading counts: books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines… even the back of the cereal box!) Each milestone of 13 music notes’ worth of reading earns a prize!
