The Houston Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is a fun, engaging solution to the summer doldrums. Just visit the Belle Sherman Kendall Neighborhood Library and Community Center, located at 609 N. Eldridge, to sign up for the 2010 Summer Reading Program. Kids and teens earn a chance to win an HP mini netbook, board games, books, craft kits, coupons to cool restaurants, and more! This year's theme is “From Fables to Fantasy!.”
The Summer Reading Program, which runs now through August 1, is a free incentive program to encourage kids and teens to read. The summer line up offers numerous fun, educational programs including entertainers, storytimes, science activities, crafts and other fun programming for kids and teens up to 18 years of age.
You can register at your local library or online. Once you are enrolled, just read or listen to books, enter book titles or time read on your online reading log either at home or with the help of your librarian, and come to your local Houston Public Library location to pick up your prize at 5, 10 and 20 book level.
The more books you read, the more prizes you are eligible to win.
