A Universe of Stories: Summer Reading Program for Kids

June 1, 2019 - July 31, 2019
9:00 a.m.

It’s time again for the annual Summer Reading Program for kids. This year’s theme is A Universe of Stories. Stop by any Fort Smith Public Library location to enjoy books, movies, magazines, computers, music, and special library programs of all kinds this summer. The summer reading program is designed to encourage reading for pleasure; it will help young people who are able to read independently retain the valuable reading skills they developed over this past school year. Preschool children too young to read may also participate and will receive credit for the books read to them. Children will have the opportunity to earn reading awards, such as book bags, food coupons, small prizes, and Creekmore Park activity passes, for every five hours they read (independent readers) or every five books they listen to (pre-readers). Independent readers who read 25 (or more!) hours will be able to select a library book to have dedicated in their name. Children of all ages will be eligible to win one of several grand prizes at the end of the program. Registration begins June 1st at all four Fort Smith Public Library locations. Come discover a Universe of Stories at your Library this summer!

Admission: Free.
