You and your children are invited to join the St. Clairsville Public Library’s Summer Reading Program.
Not only will there be incentives to read, but you can attend fun programs and events for all ages!
Children ages 0-11 can register for “Fizz, Boom, Read!”, an exciting mix of science experiments, crafts, and other activities. The programs are free and open to children of all abilities. Don’t forget to count how many books you read!
By keeping their minds active during the summer months, children and teens are better prepared when school is back in session.
Remember, you are your child’s first teacher. Explore picture books with your children. Ask them to point out people, animals, and objects in the illustrations. Read to your children and ask them to read to you. Your librarian will be happy to help you find books that are just right.
This and more information is also available upon registration at the Children’s Department desk.
Teens ( 12-18)
You are invited to “Spark a Reaction,” in your own Summer Reading Program. Be sure to head to the library to try some great hands-on experiments while also keeping track of how many books you read at home for a chance to win some great prizes!
You will receive tickets for participating in the Summer Reading Program.
Attend a program = 5 tickets
Read a book = 1 ticket
You can put their tickets into the prize box of their choice. Winners will be drawn out at the end of the program. Also, you have a chance to win some great prizes at the weekly programs. The more you participate, the more chances you will have to win!
A list of events will be available at registration. You can also check our Program Calendar on this site.
This and more information will be given to teens as they register at the Children’s Department desk.
