Santa Clara County Summer Reading Program
Submitted By Gwendolyn Mitchell/Marina Hinestrosa
Santa Clara County Library District's 2013 Summer Reading Program kicks off Saturday, June 1. The annual program, which continues through Saturday, August 31, encourages everyone to read during the summer.
"The summer months provide a much needed break for children, but, from personal experience, I know that parents look for ways to make the time stimulating and productive," said County of Santa Clara Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Delegate for the County Library District Joint Powers Authority. "I hope adults and children take full advantage of the benefits of joining our library summer reading programs."
Santa Clara County Library is offering two different summer reading programs. Children ages 0-12 can read, earn a prize, attend performances, and participate in craft projects at the library, where they can read books and be rewarded for their progress. While they "Dig Into Reading," the children's summer reading theme, they'll explore the wonders under their feet - buried treasure, evidence of ancient civilizations, insects, rocks, gardening, and more. Teens, ages 13 and up, and adults can delve "Beneath the Surface" to examine the under layers of the physical world, ancient civilizations, as well as the human psyche. They will be able to attend a program or write reviews to share.
All are invited to join the fun by registering for Summer Reading online at www.sccl.org or in person at any one of the district libraries. By signing up for the Summer Reading Program, and reading or listening to five books, teens and adults can enter a drawing to win a Nexus Google Tablet or an iPad mini.
