Summer Reading 2014

June 2, 2014

Dearborn Public Library offers 2014 Summer

Reading for all ages beginning June 16

DEARBORN,Mich. – Dearborn residents of all ages are invited to participate in the Dearborn Public Library’s 2014 Summer Reading program, which kicks off on Monday, June 16.

Four programs will be offered this year—Read to Me (birth to kindergarten), Fizz Boom Read (first-sixth grade), Spark a Reaction (seventh to 12th grade), and Literary Elements (adults 18+).

Children of all ages will receive a free book for participating.  All adult and teen participants will also be entered into a grand prize drawing for a Best Buy gift card.

Again this year, online reading logs will be available for all ages, making it convenient for busy families to participate.

Participants need a library card to register and log information online.  It is possible to register the whole family for summer reading using one library card.

The summer reading program will also feature a community-based component where participants can log events attended.  Participants are encouraged to log hours read per week and the number of community events attended each week.  Participants who log at least one hour or one event each week will also be entered into weekly prize drawings throughout the summer reading program.

In addition, there will be many programs to reflect the 2014 summer reading themes.  To kick the summer off, Mad Science of Detroit will be here for two performances on Wednesday, June 18, at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Also, starting June 16, there will be drop-in children’s crafts every Wednesday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m and a children’s movie at 2 p.m. every Friday (except July 4).

Younger children will enjoy storytimes for ages 2-6 on Thursdays and for ages 6-23 months on Fridays.

Also, adults can participate in a special series of lectures during “brown bag inspirations” at noon on Wednesdays throughout the summer. Bring a lunch and listen to speakers on topics as varied as how to homebrew, green cleaning, and alternative energy. There’s bound to be something of interest to everyone.

The 2014 summer reading program ends August 1.
