Scappoose Library announces summer storytimes

The Scappoose Public Library is offering a variety of programs and events for youth this summer.

The collaborative, multi-state 2011 Summer Reading theme deals with travel and world culture. The children's slogan is: One World, Many Stories; and the teen's slogan is: You Are Here.

Children of all ages and teens will have opportunities to participate in programs and read to win some outstanding prizes. The prizes include 2011 Summer Reading-themed t-shirts, water bottles, boomerangs and book bags.
