Summer Reading ~ Heroes of All Kinds

Grab your mask! 
         Put on your cape! 

It's Summer Reading time at the Candor Library! This year's theme is "Every Hero Has a Story".

Candor Free Library's Summer Reading program begins Monday, July 6 - that's next week. It goes six weeks, through Saturday, August 15.

 All you need to participate is a library card (free!),  a reading log (also free!) and a book bag to carry home all those literary treasures. You'll need to bring the book bag...

Each week there will be a prize or activity at the circulation desk. Summer readers can fill out a ticket for each book they read and enter the end-of-summer drawing for a Barnes & Noble Gift certificate. 

There's a category for every reader:
Not all heroes wear capes!
Beginning Reader - 2nd Grade
    3rd Grade - 6th Grade
    Teen through 12th Grade

So after the carnival has packed up and the smell of gunpowder has finally wafted away, after the last of the popcorn and cotton candy is gone, drop by the library to pick up your Summer Reading log and some good books. If you’re looking for inspiration about books to read, check out the lists of theme-related titles here.

For more reading lists, check out ALSC. Also, Barnes & Noble is challenging children in grades 1-6 to read eight books this summer and keep a reading journal. Readers can turn in their journals before Labor Day to receive a free book (from a selected list). More info here and here
