Library reading programs gear up for summer


With summer break approaching, libraries in Clackamas County are getting ready to “Dig Into Reading” with programs for kids of all ages. Families can participate in the summer reading program at any of the 13 libraries in the county.

Starting in June, young children through teenagers can register to keep track of how much reading they do this summer. Last year more than 15,000 signed up in Clackamas County. Reading through the summer break is a great way for kids to keep up their reading skills. In addition, there also are some fun incentives. When they reach their goal, kids and teens turn in the reading log for prizes, including a ticket to a Trailblazers game, a swim pass to the North Clackamas Aquatic Park, and a coupon for a deluxe ride bracelet at Oaks Park.

From magic to juggling to puppets, there are fun options at libraries for all ages. For younger ones, weekly story times provide a chance to sing and play at the library. Many libraries feature special teen programs as well, with crafts, movies and gaming parties.
