Summer vacation is here, but that doesn't mean children should say goodbye to reading. Join Mayor Rawlings in the Mayor's Summer Reading Club and have fun while keeping your child's academic skills sharp. FOX 4 is a proud sponsor.
You and your child/children can sign up for the eight week program at any one of the 29 Dallas Public Library locations, the Dallas Public Library's Bookmobile or online. Be sure to check dallaslibrary.org for details on free, special Mayor's Summer Reading Club events and entertainment scheduled at each of the 29 library locations throughout the summer.
This year the Mayor's Summer Reading Club is encouraging all ages to participate. Adults modeling good reading habits is a sure way to encourage children to become lifelong readers!
Participating adult club members will log the books they have read by entering the title and author (or publication) online or at their local branch along with a brief review about what they've read. Two drawings for adults will be held during the eight week program. Reading logged during the first four weeks of the programs will be entered toward the first six prizes and reading logged during the second four weeks of the program will be entered toward the second six prizes. Adults may select which prizes they would like their entries to go toward.
Each week from June 15 – August 10 participating young club members will have a chance to earn an incentive prizes by reporting what they read to any Dallas Public Library location.
To earn the weekly prize (see prize list), children 7 and older are required to read at least five hours per week and children 6 and under are asked to read three hours per week.
Two weekly prizes will include a new book for Club members up to 18 years of age.
All readers may report any reading material including books, e-books, audio books and magazines. Suggested reading by age level may also be found on the library website.
