"Build a Better World Summer Reading Program 2017"

posted Jun 6, 2017, 3:13 AM by Paula Collins   [ updated Jun 6, 2017, 3:17 AM ]

Area preschoolers, school age, young adult, and adults are invited to “Build a Better World” through reading by joining the annual summer reading program at the Curwensville Public Library.  Participation in the program is free and runs from June 6 through August 8, 2017.  To sign up for summer reading, interested individuals may visit the library during regular business hours.  At registration, participants will receive the program guidelines, a reading log, and a schedule of events. 

The goals of the summer reading program are to motivate community members to read for pleasure, encourage school-aged youth to maintain reading skills, and establish the library as an essential community service.  “The reading program is designed to keep students engaged during the summer and foster a love of reading,” shared Paula Collins, Director, “In addition, it also reinforces that public libraries are community gathering spaces, information sharing places, technology hubs, literacy centers, and promoters of education and lifelong learning for all ages.” 

Throughout the summer, participants of the “Build a Better World”  reading program, will experience at least one of the five literacies (Basic, Financial, Information, Health, and/or Civic & Social) at all library events as part of the PA Forward | Pennsylvania Library Association initiative.
Youth & Teen Kickoff Event:  Join us for a thrilling magic show featuring M&M Magic on Tuesday, June 13th at 10:00 a.m. at the Curwensville Elementary gym.  All registered summer reading participants that attend the show will be entered in a drawing to win a swimming pool sponsored by Walmart Distribution Center.  Onsite registration for the summer program will be available for youth that have not previously registered.
