The Summer Reading Program at the Carnegie Public Library is in full swing, but there is still time to join and participate!

Our reading program is an independent reading program where you select books from the library and read them at home. The parents decide with their child how many books to read for enjoyment during the summer to help prevent the “summer slide.” Give your child a head start this fall, by keeping them engaged in reading and participating in educational programs.

Kids that finish the program will receive a prize package with coupons from area restaurants and businesses, plus a reading certificate. More than 500 kids have signed up for the Summer Reading Program. In June the library presented 44 programs with 1,300 participants!

We still have many programs scheduled, including Tech Thursdays, Beading Extravaganza, Story Times, Books & Blocks, Library Lock-In, What’s Cooking?, Pig Party, Mad Scientist, Party in the Park, Salsa Saturday, Lego Expo, Discovery Camp II, and a Stars & Constellations program led by famed astrologer, Dean Regas from the Cincinnati Observatory.

Call us at 740-335-2540 or visit our web site at www.cplwcho.org for more information.
