Above: The summer reading program has focused on heroes this year with artwork by author Jarrett Krosoczka, who visited both Neary and Woodward students this spring.

School is just around  the corner, so the summer reading program is winding down.

Back in June, Children’s Librarian Kim Ivers challenged town kids to read more than 6,276 books to beat last year’s count. As of this morning, thekids were just 177 shy!

So bring in your reading logs by Monday, August 31 To help them meet their goal!

While you are there you can also take advantage of the summer program activities.

There are also scavenger and fact hunts with weekly drawings to encourage learning, exploring the room, and returning throughout the summer.

And if you borrowed  one of the “reading ducks”, don’t forget to check back in with your illustrated description of the fun you had!
