2016 Summer Reading Clubs


June 27th - August 8th

Our Our "Froggy" READ-TO-ME Club is for 'pre-readers.' The parent keeps track of the number of books (not titles) read to the child in groups of 10. The family then comes in to report the number of books and the child getsa stamp to their game piece here in the Hart Children's Room. Your child gets a stamp for every 10 books read to them. Each participant of the Read-To-Me club gets a FREE picture book of their choice to bring home!

Our "ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, READ!" Club is a six-week program open to all 'independent readers' beginning JUNE 24th. Come sign up at our KICK- Off party on Friday, 6/24! No worries if you can't make the party, just come in anytime the library is open and sign up. Children may choose any books, magazines (read cover to cover), graphic novels, eBooks, etc., as reading material. NEW this year, each child will keep track of the number of hours read on a reading log we provide. They keep this log at home and are responsible for bringing it to the library to record hours. For every 2 hours read, the child will receive: a sticker to put on their game board, a prize from our Treasure Chest, and a chance to win our weekly raffle for a FREE book! The child will keep their 'game board' here at the library desk on which to come and record number of hours read. We also offer an ice cream or pizza coupon to those who complete their first whole game board. Please ask us about how your child can join.

REMEMBER:


ONLY BOOKS READ AFTER YOUR SCHOOLYEAR ENDS

are acceptable to count toward the Summer Reading Club.

FIRST DAY TO ENTER BOOKS IN THE READING LOGS IS JUNE 24TH

SCHOOL SUMMER READING LISTS

We support the summer reading lists issued by the schools in the Yorktown and Lakeland school districts by ordering multiple book copies when possible. You can also place a hold request for books from other libraries in Westchester Library System. These requests can be placed here at the library or at home.

K - 7th grade titles can be found in the Children's Room

8th - 12th grade titles can be found in the Adult section of the library
