The Silsbee Public Library is hosting its annual summer reading program for children ages 12 and younger. This program was built to keep kids prepared for their next school year, while also having tons of summer fun. Kids are encouraged to read as many books at or above their reading level as possible, and to keep track of these books using a tally sheet. The more books the kids read, the more chances they have to win exciting prizes.

“The program is designed to keep kids involved in the library and continue to read during the summer,” said library director Naconna Arnfield. “Whenever they go back into their next school grade their mind is already geared up for the next year.” Just less than two weeks after registration opened up on June 1, there are already 161 kids signed up for the program. However, don’t be frightened by this large number. There is plenty of more room to sign up, and the last day of registration is July 31.
