The San Benito County Free Library would like to invite all community members to participate in its annual Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is “Reading Takes You Everywhere.”
Traveling through and exploring our world and others will be made possible through games, crafts, entertainment, prizes, and, of course, reading! Registration begins in-person at the library or online via the library’s website (www.sbcfl.org) on Monday, June 4 and is open to children and adults of all ages and abilities. Participants will set their own reading goals and will receive prizes, including a free book and a chance at winning a Kindle Fire Tablet, at the conclusion of the Summer Reading Program for achieving those goals. Additionally, all children and teens who complete their reading goals will receive a gift certificate for a free mini pizza from Mountain Mike’s, a free sprinkle cookie from Lighthouse 55 Bakery, and a free mini shave ice from Ohana Shave Ice.
Children up to 12 years of age and their parents and/or caregivers are invited to attend the library’s in-person Children’s Summer Reading Program events taking place every Thursday from 2-3:30 p.m. from June 14 through July 26. Teens ages 12 and up are invited to attend the library’s in-person Teen Summer Reading Program taking place every Tuesday from 2-3:30 p.m. from June 12 through July 24. Lunch will be provided at all Summer Reading Program events and participation in the program and all library events is free.
