2016 Summer Reading Club: On Your Mark, Get Set,...Read!
The Cedar Park Public Library, in conjunction with the Texas State Library, is proud to present the 2016 Summer Reading Clubs: “On Your Mark, Get Set… Read!” for kids, “Get in the Game” for teens, and “Exercise Your Mind” for adults.
The Library’s Summer Reading Clubs run from June 6th to July 29th and are open to all ages. The programs begin on June 6th with a Scholastic Book Fair, sponsored by the Friends of the Cedar Park Public Library. The book fair will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on June 6th and 7th, with special guest Clifford the Big Red Dog who will be available for visits and photographs from 10:00 am to noon during the Book Fair. Also on June 6th the Library will hold a Touch-A-Truck event from 10 am to noon, so kids can explore some awesome City trucks, like a fire engine and construction vehicles.
This year, the Summer Reading Club is all online! Register at readingprogram.cedarparktexas.gov
and begin logging your minutes on June 6th! For every 200 minutes they read, kids can come into the library to claim their prize pack with a colored cut-out to display in the library’s window and special incentive awards and coupons! Teen prizes are earned for every 300 minutes read. Audio books, newspapers and magazines from the library also count for minutes.
Adults are encouraged to participate, too. For every 400 minutes read, an entry form for a drawing prize is earned. Thanks to the support of sponsor ClearChoice EyeCare and other local area merchants and businesses there are many terrific prizes to choose from!
In addition to the library’s regular storytimes, there will be special performers for Toddlers/Preschoolers on Tuesdays, a Just for Tweens program on Tuesday afternoons, weekly family movies on Wednesdays, special performers for elementary-aged children on Thursdays, and teen activities on Saturdays. A complete calendar of events is available at the library or online at http://www.cedarparktexas.gov/librarycalendar.
