2014 Summer Reading Program

Tompkins County Public Library will celebrate summer free reading programs for infants, toddlers, school-aged children and teens.

Programs being offered for 2014 are:

READ TO ME (Pregnancy through Age 4): “Read to Me” encourages parents, parents-to-be and other caregivers to foster a love of reading at an early age. Registrants who complete a Reading Bingo Card--featuring ideas on incorporating early literacy activities in their everyday routines--will receive a free book and a chance to win gift certificates from local merchants. For more information, and to download Reading Bingo Cards, visit: http://tcpl.org/kids/programs-summer-pre-reader.php

FIZZ, BOOM, READ! (Ages 5 through 10): “Fizz, Boom, Read!” is designed to promote reading for children ages 5 through 10. Participants are encouraged to read every day during the summer months. Children who keep track of the time they spend reading will receive a certificate of participation, a free book and the chance to win raffle prizes!
