The Alliance Public Library is offering three summer reading programs this year. Registration for the “Read for a Ride” program will be Tuesday, May 22nd-Friday, June 1st. This program is based on an accelerated reading goal, and if met, the student will be issued $15 in Chamber bucks, which can be turned in for a carnival ride bracelet or spent at participating local businesses. The “Dream Big” program will run June 4th-August 3rd and will be based on a reading log that students must complete and submit to the library to earn weekly Pizza Hut certificates. A special program for children who have not yet entered school called “Read to Me” is based on the amount of time that the child has been read to. If the reading log is completed and turned in, the child will receive a weekly Dairy Queen certificate. “Read to Me” will run from June 4th-August 3rd. For information regarding any of the summer reading programs, please contact Shelley at 762-1387.
