Summer Reading Programs 2013
It is time once again for Summer Reading programs to begin. As always, I think you should sign up for summer reading at your local library. They usually have other fun events to go along with their summer reading programs, and my kids think they also offer the best prizes. For more information about library programs, I have links to some county library systems programs below:
Contra Costa County Library
San Mateo County Library
These bookstores are running their usual summer reading programs as well:
At Barnes and Noble, kids can earn a free book (from a pre-selected list) for reading 8 books over the summer.
Half-Priced Books is offering kids a $5.oo gift certificate to kids who read for 300 minutes for the months of June and July. Kids who read their 300 minutes each month can also enter to win a bigger gift certificate.
