Summer Library Program
Can You Dig It?
Head over to the Henrietta A. Landwehr Children’s Library Center for a summer full of reading and great activities at Mead Public Library! And it’s all free!
• Reading Club for children entering grades 1-up who can read by themselves, or
• Read-to-Me Club for children age 2 and up who are not yet reading or not yet entering grade 1.
Check it out
If you don’t have one, apply for your own free library card, by stopping in or online. It’s free and you need a library card to sign up! Once you have a library card, you can join our program online or in person beginning May 28. Use your home or school computer and use these links: Reading Club or the Read-to-Me Club. Or come in and use our computer to sign up at the Henrietta A. Landwehr Children’s Library Center (third floor). Last day to join is July 26.
Bring your own card to Mead Library and pick out books, audiobooks, or graphic novels. Or you may read books from home, magazines or newspapers.
Stay on top
Start reading! Keep track of the time you read.
Members, as soon as you have completed 5 hours of reading, bring along your library card and come on in! (Someone else can’t come in for you.) You’ll receive:
• a Reading Achievement Certificate
• a free book to keep.
Keep it up!
After you’ve read 10 hours, come back to receive a coupon for a frozen custard from Culver’s.
At 15 hours, come back for another great reward! You must claim your reward before continuing to the next level.
Finish 20 hours, and you’ll get an “Outstanding Reader” ribbon. (One set of coupons/rewards per day, per person.)
July 31 is the last day you may record your reading time and claim your rewards.
