Published DateGILFORD — The Gilford Public Library announces the start of this year's Summer Reading Program, and the Summer Reading Program Kick-off on Monday, June 24 at 3 p.m. with Paul Warnick.
There will be songs, laughter, "dirt" to eat, and books to check out.
Readers of all ages should sign up for the Summer Reading Program anytime on Monday and pick up a reading log to be entered into a drawing to win great prizes.
This summer's theme, "Dig Into Reading," inspires readers to 'mine' their personal interests and 'dig around' for all kinds of information, activities and fun at the library. This year's theme for adult readers is "Groundbreaking Reads" and "Beneath the Surface" for teens.
Coordinated by the New Hampshire State Library, the collaborative Summer Reading program helps encourage children and readers of all ages to spend more time enjoying nonassigned reading during the summer months. Research has shown that children who read during summer months retain more of their reading skills and are better prepared for school in the fall.
Following the Summer Reading Kick-off next week, the Library is offering an LED Craft for the Teens on Wednesday at 1 p.m. Sign up at the circulation desk.
The Summer Reading Program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Gilford Library.
