Summer reading will begin June 1st!
The Reading Program
Open June 1st – August 31st.
Ages 0 to PreK can pick up an early literacy bingo sheet. Bring the completed sheet back to the library for a free book, a free Pizza Hut personal pan pizza coupon, library bag, and fun prize!
PreK – Grade 5 can grab a timesheet and keep track of the number of minutes they read during the summer (goal of 12 hours). Once you use all your stickers, come by for a free book, a free Pizza Hut personal pan pizza coupon, library bag, and fun prize!
Grades 6 – 12 will have the opportunity to fill out a book review for every book read during June, July, and August. For each completed review sheet you earn a raffle ticket to put into one of our 4 prize pack drawings!
We will also be doing the page count challenge versus the Bozeman Public Library teens again in June and July, so be sure to read early and often so we can keep our awesome trophy and bragging rights here in Belgrade!
