Reason #2 to Sign Up for the Summer Reading Program: There are SO Many Amazing Books to Read This Summer and So Many Ways to Enjoy Them!

Summer vacation is the perfect opportunity to catch up on reading all the amazing books there are to read, and there are so many different ways to enjoy books!  Not a great reader?  No problem!  Did you know that the best way to improve your reading is to…read?  Simply practicing your reading for 20 minutes a day can make you a better reader by the end of the summer.

Being read to by someone else is also a great way to enjoy books.  You can count those bedtime stories that someone reads to you as part of your 20 minute goal each day.  Teens, you can read to younger brothers and sisters for 20 minutes per day, and you’ll all earn prizes for it!

Going on a long car trip?  Check out a CD audiobook to listen to on the way!  Try the Harry Potter series read by master narrator Jim Dale.

Planning on spending all your time in front of your computer this summer?  Check out Funbrain.com where you can read books and mad libs.    You can read an online version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid instantly!

Don’t forget about all the wonderful eBooks and eAudiobooks you can enjoy straight from your computer, your eReader, or even your smart phone through the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District’s eMedia Catalog.  All titles are free and access to the catalog is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week!

Not sure what to read?  Stop by the Children’s Desk and we will help you select the perfect book for your summer reading.  We also have reading lists on our website for Kids and Teens.

The Summer Reading Program starts tomorrow, June 1!  Come in to the library or go online to sign up and get your reading log.  Call 507-4015 for more information.
