Catch the Reading Bug!

Hi Kids! The Summer Reading Club at LBPL is well under way. This year's theme is called Catch the Reading Bug! Any age up to 6th grade can sign up to join at any Long Beach Public Library branch.

When you join, you will be given a Catch the Reading Club bag with a folder, crayons and a bookmark. Inside the folder you will see a path of honeycombs. For each day you read for 20 minutes, you can color in a honeycomb. After five days of reading, you can bring your folder back to the library and get a sticker, a free book, and a free prize from the treasure chest. Prizes and books are given out every time you read for 20 minutes a day for five days, all summer long! At the end of summer, there will be a grand prize raffle drawing.

Parents, please encourage your children to participate in our reading program. It is a great way to keep their reading skills up during the summer.

Kids - Good luck, have fun, and read, read, read!
