Summer Reading Program 2013 - Fun for all ages at the Library

Reading is So Delicious! Sierra Madre’s eight-week Summer Reading Program starts on Monday, June 10 and runs through Saturday, August 3, 2013. Participants may register anytime during this period and read to earn prizes along the way.

Children: Each child receives a reading log, bookmark, and a book bag at registration. Children read and record their books (print or e-Book), and prizes are awarded when each reading goal is met. Children may enter one of three divisions: Beginner, for our very youngest patrons, who are not yet able to read on their own; Reader for school-age readers in grades 1 – 6; and Challenger for children in grades 2 – 6, in which 35 hours of reading is the goal.
