The Children’s Summer Reading Program returns to C.H. Booth Library on Tuesday, June 23. The annual incentive-based program is held to promote reading while school is out for the summer.
Alana Bennison, head of the children’s department at the library, encourages all parents and children to get involved.
“It’s all about finding the right books for each child, and it’s about improving the ability to recall and retell stories,” said Ms Bennison.

After reading five books while participating in C.H. Booth Library’s Summer Reading Program, children can enter their name into a raffle box, from which they can win a number of prizes. While children win prizes, librarians are encouraged by the idea that young children are making a connection with books early in their lives through the annual program.
