Where are you going this summer? While some of us may be planning vacations here, there and everywhere, many will be spending their downtime closer to home. No worries – if you’re planning a “stay-cation” this year, you can still enjoy the thrill of travel without the hassles and without leaving home.
With Broward County Library’s Summer Reading Program, children and adults are encouraged to pick up a book and read for fun, and this year’s themes of “One World, Many Stories” for children and “Novel Destinations” for adults open up a whole universe of fun and excitement for all.
This month at Broward County Library (http://www.browardlibrary.org), you can enter the Summer Reading Program for a chance to win great prizes. Children can pick up an easy and fun reading game board at any of Broward County Library’s locations and earn reading awards while playing to win a chance to score grand prizes such as Miami Dolphins ticket packages, gift cards, movie passes, a Nintendo Wii Game system and more. And, of course, all children are invited to their local library for great fun and free summer programs.
Grown-ups can also join in the fun. This year, 17 Broward County Library locations will be hosting the Adult Summer Reading Program, which offers adults the opportunity to read for prizes, including a grand prize of a Color Nook. Additionally, there will be special Adult Summer Reading Program kick-off programs and events such as movies, book discussions and travel programs.
Join the Summer Reading Program and expand your horizons through books.
