2014 Summer reading program begins June 6

Published: Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 09:40 AM.

Young readers will explore all things science this summer as the Port St. Joe Branch of the Gulf County Public Library presents “FIZZ, BOOM, READ!” during the Florida Library Youth Summer Reading Program.  Children pre-k through fifth grade are invited to join in activities that will include science experiments, archaeology, Legos, and of course, fun and creative storytelling. 

The public library cares about your children and has programs to keep them reading all summer.  Sign a contract with a librarian to decide how many books your child will read and receive a logbook to record the titles completed. Rewards can be earned by completing the contract.  Families are invited to join the Read-to-Me portion of the program.

Registration begins Friday, May 9 so sign up soon, as space is limited.  Programs will be held each Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET throughout the month of June.  For more information, call the library at 229-8879 or visit 110 Library Drive in Port St. Joe.

All programs are free of charge.  Generous support for FIZZ, BOOM, READ!  is provided by the Friends of the Gulf County Public Library.
