Public Libraries of Lancaster County and the Bookmobile kicked off this year’s Summer Reading Program on June 4th. Readers of all ages are invited to READ all things related to this year’s theme as local public libraries present “Get on Your Mark, Get Set…Read!” during their summer reading program, while “ Get in the Game…Read” is the teen slogan. The themes for this year’s program for each of the age groups are: physical health, mind & body health, nutrition, exercise, physical sports, and exercising the brain. The public libraries will offer special stories, events, music, and hands-on learning centered on these themes and much more!
The countywide reading program begins June 4 and will run until August 13, 2016. Youth may join anytime during this time frame. The 2016 Summer Reading Program supports Pennsylvania Academic Standards & PA Early Learning Standards and is open to children and teens of all ages. Program components include 4 reading levels: Read Aloud (birth-4 years), Elementary (ages 5-9), Tween (ages 10-12) and the Teen level (ages 13-19).
