Summer Reading Club returns to library

The Kent District Library (KDL) invites children and teens to sign up for the Summer Reading Club and spend some time reading this summer! This year’s Summer Reading Club runs from Monday, June 14 to Saturday, August 7. This summer, the library will encourage kids to “make a splash” and teens to “make waves” with lots of free programs. Enjoy arts and crafts, music, movies, theatre, carnivals and more.

When they sign up for the Summer Reading Club, children in grades five and under, both readers and pre-readers, can set and accomplish their own reading goals to win prizes and enter a drawing for a brand-new bicycle! Teens in grades six through 12 can participate for the chance to win great prizes, like a gift certificate to the mall.

This summer will be full of fun for all ages. Programs will include carnivals, pet shows, magic shows, puppet shows, jewelry-making, lawn games, book discussions and so much more! Sign up for Summer Reading Club starting June 14 at any of the KDL’s 18 branch locations, including Krause Memorial Library, 140 E. Bridge St., Rockford.
