Enid Baa Library's Summer Reading Program Will Begin

June 1, 2006 – The Children's Reading Room summer theme this year is "Get Energized to Read @ Your Library." They will be focusing on alternative energy sources and their potential for the future. The program is not limited to this theme, but students are encouraged to read books focusing on energy for bonus points. Please register at Enid Baa Library between June 1 and July 14. Students must have a library card in order to participate. Library cards are free so please pick up an application at the library.
Young children (six years and under) must read for 360 minutes or more to qualify for the program. Children (7 -10 years old) must read 12 books that are 40 – 100 pages long to qualify for the program. Pre-teens and teens (11-14 years old) must read 12 books that are 90 – 200 pages long to qualify for the program. Young adults (14-18 years old) must read nine books that are more than 200 pages long to qualify for the program. The books from your school's summer reading list can also be used. The reading program runs from June 19 to Aug. 12.
All readers must complete and submit a log card located at Baa Library for each book read. These cards include the title, author, number of pages read, genre, a brief summary and a recommendation to other readers. Log cards are distributed at the library, and all completed logs are due no later than Aug. 12 to the library.
The students who complete the program will receive a $20 gift certificate from Dockside Book Shop at the awards party and program on Aug. 26, 1:30 p.m., at the Enid M. Baa Library.
