Ray County Library’s Summer Reading Programs – “Fizz Boom Read” and “Spark a Reaction” for 2014 – started June 2 and will run through July 31.
The programs are for children ages 3-18 and are offered each summer to keep children reading when they’re out of school.
Thanks to local sponsors, participants receive a free book when they sign up, and then earn incentives during the programs.
Coupons are provided by merchants such as the local McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Shell and Sonic outlets.
Children who complete the program are then eligible to enter one of 10 grand prize drawings. This year’s prizes include Grill and Patio Café, Outdoor Playhouse, Lego Station and Legos, Razzle Dazzle Princess Set, Electric Scooter, American Girl Doll and Accessories, Craft Bonanza, Air Hogs Set, $100 Walmart Gift Card and a $100 Game Stop Gift Card.
Children qualify to enter the drawings by reading an age-appropriate number of books. The summer reading programs include a number of other free activities, including book drawings, a coloring contest, story time and black-out bingo.
