Laughter Is In Store During Library’s Summer Reading Program

What building has the most stories? The library!

Riddles and giggles will fill New Castle-Henry County Public Library as the library launches its summer reading program with the theme “Laugh it up @ your library.” The summer reading program, open to all ages, begins on the bookmobile May 30 and in the library on June 3.

The programs on the bookmobile and in the library will maintain their established structure with improved prizes and added opportunities to win. Children who come to the bookmobile will be rewarded just for visiting the traveling library. Grand prizes on the bookmobile for kids are a Zvue video player, game boy micro and $50 Visa gift card.

Teens and adults who come to the library or the bookmobile can choose books that interest them, read the books, write a short review, and turn in their review cards when they bring their books back. They will receive a small prize just for turning in their cards (limit three prizes per visit) and be entered into a weekly and grand prize drawing. Weekly prizes include Starbucks gift cards and movie passes. The grand prizes for teens are an iPod Nano, an Anime boxed set, and a $50 gift card. There will be three grand winners for the adult program as well, with each winner receiving a $100 Visa gift card.

Children who visit the library can participate in a program similar to the adult and teen programs, with a grand prize of a portable DVD player. Children can also win a small prize by solving the weekly “secret riddle.”

As an added bonus this year, summer reading participants can earn extra entries into the weekly and grand prize drawings by attending the various free programs offered at the library this summer.

The library’s summer reading program is sponsored by Friends of the Library, with support from many local businesses.
