Fizz, Boom, Read is the theme this year for the elementary summer reading program at the Cavalier County Library (CCL).
Posted on 6/1/14
Children residing in Cavalier County, or attending one of the schools located in the county and entering first through sixth grade are eligible to sign up.
The teen summer reading theme is Spark a Reaction and is open to students going into seventh through twelfth grades.
Sign up for each program will continue through June 28.
Both programs ask participants to read 600 minutes and provide a sheet divided in 15 minute increments to help keep track. Once the goal is reached, the completed form should be returned to the library where you will receive your completion certificate and prize party invitation.
A Kick-off party will be held at the CCL the afternoon of June 3 for children going into grades one through six. Activities will include plinko, making oobleck, and science centers. A snack will be provided.
This years program is science based and CCL staff, Dawn Borgen, and volunteer Macine Lucach will be adding to the fun with 3 classes during the summer. Sign up now at the library, class sizes are limited with only a few spots remaining.
Summer Reading is a program offered every summer at the CCL beginning after Memorial Day weekend and running for approximately 8 weeks. The theme changes each year and is followed by most of the United States.
The Fizz, Boom, Read prize party will be held on July 29 and everyone who completes the reading goal and returns their reading record will win two or more prizes. The Spark a Reaction teen program participants will meet at the library for prize drawings and pizza on July 28.
You do not need to be present to win a prize, however, as we draw your name you will be able to pick out the prize you want from those available. All others will be selected by library staff by random name draws and may be picked up at the desk after August 1.
