Summer reading program kicks off at libraries

The Yolo County Library is rolling out its popular summer reading program on June 1, running through mid-August.

The program includes free reading clubs at all branch libraries and prizes for all ages. Beginning June 1, visit any Yolo County branch library to pick up a schedule of summer events and sign up for the programs highlighted below, or visit http://www.yolocountylibrary.org for more information.

The Davis branch library is at 315 E. 14th St.

“One World, Many Stories” is for children ages 0-12. Children who check in at their branch library’s information desk six times during the summer to share what they have been reading will get a prize each time.

In addition, programs will be available allowing them to visit Pakistan, Alaska and other faraway places around the world without leaving their hometowns. Each child who completes the program will receive a free paperback book and a pizza coupon from Round Table Pizza.

“You are Here” is for teens ages 13-18. Teens who fill out a short survey will be entered into a systemwide raffle for a chance to win a Flip camera or a Target gift certificate. In addition, participants who read and review books will be entered into a raffle for branch prizes — the more books read and reviewed, the more chances to win.

“Novel Destinations” is for adults. Adults who share their book recommendations with the library will be entered into a drawing for a prize. The library will post reviews anonymously so others can discover new and exciting reads. Each branch will have special adult programs over the summer.

“The Yolo County Library’s summer reading program is a critically important tool to keep children learning during the summer,” said Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chairman Matt Rexroad.

“Studies have shown that school-aged children lose up to one month of learning over the summer break. Summer reading programs and parent involvement are two proven ways to reading success.

“Don’t let your child fall behind this summer — sign up for the summer reading program at your local Yolo County Library branch,” he added.

Sponsors of the 2011 program include the California Library Association; First 5 Yolo; GALE Learning; Target stores; Friends of the Davis Public Library; Friends of the Esparto Regional Library; West Sacramento Friends of the Library; Clarksburg Friends of the Library; Friends of the Knights Landing Library; and Winters Friends of the Library.
