Summer Learning Program:
"Build a Better World"
Monday, June. 12, 2017 - Saturday, August. 19, 2017
Lots of great fun and educational programs are happening at the Wyomissing Public Library this summer! The Summer Learning Program (formerly Summer Reading Program) is a 10 week program designed to promote the joy of reading and learning during summer vacation.
The library is the perfect destination to enrich your child’s summer with quality programs and events that are always free of charge. For a complete list of summer programs and events, stop by the library and pick up a summer calendar at the main desk, or view it online here.
Remember to visit the library for easy access to books for the Wyomissing Area Junior/Senior High School summer reading list at the beginning of the summer!
How does it work?
- Register for the program at the library. Use a reading ticket to keep track of the number of minutes that you read each week by coloring a Lego block for each 15 minutes. If a grown-up reads to you, that counts, too (hint: Miss Kris is a grown-up, so come for storytimes)! When you color all 4 Lego blocks on your reading ticket, turn it in at the circulation desk to receive 1 raffle ticket. Raffle tickets may be placed in the prize jar of your choice, located by the circulation desk. (1 Lego block = 15 minutes, so 1 completed ticket = 60 minutes of reading time.)
What can I win?
- Each time you turn in a reading ticket, you’ll get to choose a free book (that means you can earn up to 10 free books, if you turn in one ticket each week through the summer)! Your completed reading tickets allow you to enter the raffles to win cool prizes, like a family trip to the zoo, or a Barnes & Noble gift card, or tickets to the Reading Royals. In addition, each week we’ll raffle off a cool backpack with a special little “something” inside.
When will you announce the winners?
- We will announce the winners of the backpack each week through the summer. We will announce the raffle winners during our annual Block Party event on Saturday, August 19! We will call you if you are unable to attend.
Why does the registration form ask me for my reading goal? Must I set a reading goal?
- The summer reading program is meant to encourage a personal connection to reading. Miss Kris hopes you will choose to read on your own because you like it, not because you have to! So, if you want to set your personal reading goal for the summer (10 weeks) you may do so, but it is NOT required.
We look forward to seeing you at the library this summer!
