Summer reading is for YOU! You can prevent “summer slide” by participating in the Petoskey District Library’s (PDL) summer program, “Dig Into Reading.”
There are 2 parts to our program:
- The “Read, Record, Award part.”
- The Program part
So, “write your own story” and participate however much you want!
The “Read, Record, Award Part.”
You must have a PDL card for this part. If you cannot get a PDL card, your “home library” probably has a summer program of some sort. More info about library cards here.
You keep track of your reading (the number of books or the number of hours or both), WE check your reading record and at:
|5 books or 2 hours||You get a Participation Certificate.|
|20 books or 10 hours||A sticker on your certificate, your name on our Walls of Fame AND a Level I prize ticket which you take to the Youth services desk and trade for a prize bag.|
|50 books or 25 hours||A special certificate in the fall. Your name on our Level II “Walls of Fame,” ANOTHER prize bag that includes a paperback book or other item.|
|Project||Do a theme related project in August to make yourself eligible for a Level III prize worth greater than $10. You must complete Level II and have it approved before you may begin a project. Scroll down to see last year’s projects.|
|Keep reading all that you can until August 31||For a shot at a plaque or trophy for reading the most books or the most hours (5 awards for each).|
All of the “how-to’s” will be available when you sign up. You may sign up at any time during the summer, NOW, EVEN!
AND, NOW, 2. THE PROGRAM PART!
All of our program activities have concluded for the summer. Watch here (or sign up for the Children’s eNews) to see when our fall activities like the Chess Gang, Reader’s Theatre, and School’s Out! Game Days will begin (around mid-September).
