 Every day is a great day to read during our Summer Reading Program! Kids will get to experience new and exciting stories every Tuesday and Thursday with Mr. Will and his guest presenters.

Also returning this year are our Summer Reading Logs. For every 10 on-level books your children read they will earn a stack of awesome prizes! Last year's prizes includeed free meals at Whataburger, Applebee's, and Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, as well as free admission to the Bart Rockett magic show at Harborwalk Village.
To pick up your blank reading logs, see Mr. Will at the Reference Desk or any of our Circulation Desk staff. Logs can be turned in any time during the Summer Reading Program.

Students will gain insight into the different facets of library operation, as well as many of the skills that are necessary to succeed in today's media-rich academic environment.

Participation in the Summer Library Internship will count toward students' community service graduation and scholarship requirements.
