Build a Better World Summer 2017
The Reading Program:
This year’s program is open to elementary school-age children, preschoolers, toddlers, and caregivers with infants. The program is free and tailored for a variety of learning styles and age groups: Pre-Kindergarten, grades K- 2, grades 3-5 (based upon the school level just completed). Children may choose to do a Reading Log or a Challenge Sheet. They also may do both. We leave it to them to choose the option that best suits their learning abilities.
Participants receive an activity packet to keep track of their participation. Prizes are awarded for reaching reading goals and completing challenges. Those who finish the whole program receive 3 free books and 3 chances to win special prizes geared for each level.
Program registration begins at 10 AM on Friday, June 16. You also may register at the Library during open hours or at our special Wednesday Family performances held at the Friday Harbor Elementary School Outdoor Pavilion. Our Summer Reading Program is guaranteed to be rewarding and educational, so be sure to register!
Special thanks to The Friends of the San Juan Island Library for financially supporting the entire Summer Reading Program. Due to their generosity and commitment, the Summer Reading Program is free for all children and families.
