Pike Road Branch Library’s Summer Library Program 2016

 

Summer Reading Challenge – The Challenge Begins Monday, June 6.

For Picture Book Readers: For every five books read by a child in the “I Can Read All By Myself” category or read to a child by a grown-up in the “My Grown-up Reads to Me” category, readers may earn one treasure from Captain Matt’s treasure chest. The reader in each category who has enjoyed the most books by the end of the program will receive a Books-A-Million gift card courtesy of the Friends of the Pike Road Branch Library.

Once a reader finishes a book, he or she will record the title and total number of pages in the book on the reading log.
