Please encourage your students to join the Youth Services Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is “Have Book Will Travel!” and it’s all about traveling the United States. Our department will be decked out in all things “travel” – a fun spot for kids to play and use their imagination. Decorations include a kid-sized RV, complete with an awning for pretend outdoor picnics. Participants will receive a reading log with a map of the United States and instructions for coloring each state based on an activity they have completed – reading, listening to music, watching movies, exercising to DVDs, swimming, and more — just the kinds of things kids love to do in the summer!
Every child who completes the program will receive coupons for food and admission to many nearyby kid-friendly places as well as automatic entry into a drawing for terrific prizes. Children who live or go to school in Skokie are also eligible for a free T-shirt while supplies last.
The program began Saturday, June 1st and runs through Wednesday, July 31st.
