All ages can take the Summer Reading Challenge starting Tuesday, May 22, at Stanislaus County Libraries. This year’s theme is “Reading Takes You Everywhere.” Visit the library to pick up a reading log.
In the “30-minute challenge,” suggested for readers up to age 8, children mark off a circle on the log for each day they have read or been read to for at least 30 minutes. Participants earn prizes, provided by Friends of the Modesto Library, for every seven days of reading.
In the “hour challenge” (for ages 9 to 18 but younger readers may also participate) readers mark off a square for each hour of reading and may visit the library after seven hours of reading to be entered into a drawing for awesome prizes. Once a log is finished, readers will receive an additional entry into the prize drawing.
Adults can participate as well. Simply fill out a book review sheet to be entered into a drawing for prizes.
