The Summer Reads program begins this Saturday at all the Door County Library branches. Each of the libraries is giving a different incentive to encourage more reading by children once the school year is over. Sturgeon Bay Youth Services Librarian Beth Lokken says it is important for kids to keep their reading skills sharp during the three-month summer break. She says the Sturgeon Bay Library will be giving a special prize to those who log in their reading minutes.
Kids who enter the summer reading program are encouraged to read 15 minutes a day during the three months. This year’s program theme is “A Universe of Stories”. You can find more information on the Summer Library Programs at http://doorcountylibrary.org/summer.
