Summer Reading Programs

Barnes & Noble (The Bookie Too!) offers a summer reading program for grades 1-6. This one is super easy. Go in and pick up a reading log. **Limit of 2 free books per child.**

1. Read any 8 books and record them on your Summer Reading Journal.
2. Bring your completed Reading Journal to The Bookie Too between now and September 7th.
3. Choose your free book from the list (several books to choose from at each grade level).

Neill Public Library also has a reading program. Again, a very simple thing to do with your kids to keep them reading throughout the summer. This program is for kids of ALL ages and runs through August 31. If you register between June 11-14, you can enter to win a $200 grand prize of local gift certificates and items. Register by July 13th to earn two free books.

1. Pick up a reading calendar at the library.

2. Place an "X" for each day you read, were read to, or listened to a book on CD/tape for 20 minutes or more.

3. After 20 days of reading/listening, return your completed log and choose a FREE BOOK!

The first 500 to sign up at NPL will receive a Papa Murphy's personal pizza coupon.
Neill Public Library also has many other special programs during the summer. Musicians, magicians, comedy, and the Berenstain Bears at Reaney Park. Pick up a schedule for this too.
