This year’s Summer Reading Program at the North Olympic Library System includes a reading challenge with incentives to earn a free book and T-shirt, chances to win prizes and fun events for all ages happening both within and beyond library walls.
The program, dubbed “A Universe of Stories!”, is designed to encourage reading, inspire exploration and provide opportunities to connect to the community. Some activities — including music, magic, virtual reality, ventriloquism, storytimes and science experiments — aim to engage young people and families to help prevent the “summer slide” and build a lifelong love of reading.
Sign up at a nearby NOLS library branch beginning on Saturday, June 15, and receive a free book. Track your reading through the summer months through Aug. 17. For every 15 days, particpants may submit a ticket into the Grand Prize Drawing (up to four tickets). Each Grand Prize Drawing winner will be able to select one of the following prizes: a scenic airplane ride with Rite Brothers Aviation, a $100 gift card to a local book store or restaurant, or a LEGO® set (up to $100 in value). Read for 30 days and earn a special NOLS Summer Reading Challenge T-shirt.
Summer Reading Program grand prizes, T-shirts, books, events and more are supported by Friends of the Library Groups at all four NOLS libraries.
