Log those minutes!
Keeping everyone’s safety in mind, the summer reading program at the Lied Imperial Public Library will follow suit in taking an online approach this year while reinforcing the importance of reading. Don’t let that extended summer slide be detrimental come fall when school starts again. Give your child the gift of knowledge!
All children are being asked, with their parent’s help, to track minutes read or being read to using an app called ReaderZone. Participants will need to contact the library for the code to join. In order to successfully complete the program children will be required to complete a designated number of minutes read as well as five family activities.
The program will run from June 1 – July 31. Children age 3 – entering kindergarten (family readers) will have a reading goal of 600 minutes, which comes out to about 10 minutes per day, while children entering 1st grade & up (independent readers) will have a reading goal of 1000 minutes, which comes out to about 16 minutes per day.
Activity packets include a dragon egg craft & scavenger hunt, fairy tale nutrition creation, family tree project and a Covid-19 time capsule. All activities leave a lot of room for interpretation and can be catered to any age. The library will try to provide you with any supplies you may need but don’t have. Fairy tales, biographies & more, oh my! Take some time this summer to explore the stories of others while adding to your own! For more information, or to sign up, call the library at 882-4754.
