Reading Fun for Everyone • June 1—July 31
It’s that time of year! Readers from preschool through fifth grade are invited to “Dig into Reading,” while students in grades six through nine will go “Beneath the Surface” in the 2013 summer reading initiative. Older teens and adults can explore new interests in “Groundbreaking Reads,” a theme that entices readers to discover new authors and genres.
The summer reading initiative, comprising movies, activities, reading, special guests and more, is free to participants—thanks to the Friends of the Sioux City Public Library. Beginning June 1, participants in preschool through ninth grade earn fun prizes and a paperback book to keep just by visiting any Library location four times before July 31.
“We’ll team with the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines, the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls, and our own Sioux City Field Services, to present science, nature and construction programs,” says Youth Services Manager Jeanette Bobeen, “along with storytelling, comedy and juggling thrown in for even more good times.” Calendars are available May 4 at all Library locations and online.
