Summer Reading at CML

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

RobotandboyRead and have fun! For readers and pre-readers, the Summer Reading Program runs from Monday, June 23 through August 15. Children use a game board to complete reading-related activities throughout the summer, and take home a couple of free books along the way! Elementary public school students in Brunswick and Harpswell will receive their game boards at school; others may pick up a game board at the library beginning June 23. Free Portland Sea Dogs ticket vouchers are also available to SRP participants as long as supply lasts. Kids going into grade 6 and above register for the teen program. Sponsored by the Curtis Friends.

Reading to a dog is a great way for kids to stay motivated while their reading improves!

Call Youth Services to schedule an appointment for a young reader with Josie or with China, another fabulous canine friend!
