With the school year drawing to a close, Pulaski County Library System is gearing up for its annual Summer Reading Program.
“Paws to Read,” which is open to children of all ages, not only offers a chance for kids to brush up on their reading skills while enjoying some good books, but also includes special entertainment and the chance to take home prizes.
To win prizes, program participants keep track of the hours they read. For every five hours read, a prize is earned. Prizes include tickets to Pulaski Mariners games, Randolph Park pool passes, books and gift cards.
Special activities and entertainment events also will be held weekly throughout the program. Events planned thusfar include performances by musicians Kim and Jimbo Cary, a bilingual music show by Uno Dos Tres Andres, magician and juggler Jonathan Austin, a visit by the Wildlife Center of Virginia and Larsens’ Amazing World of Reptiles.
Further details on the reading program and related entertainment will be announced at a later date.
Registration for “Paws to Read” begins June 5 at the Pulaski or Dublin library branches or by visiting www.pclibs.org.
