2019 SUMMER LEARNING PROGRAM - A UNIVERSE OF STORIES
 
This program provides two ways to encourage children to keep reading and learning over the summer.
  • Reading Incentive Program - Children keep track of their reading, program participation and challenges. At the closing party on Saturday, July 27, children shop for prizes at our summer learning store. Those who submit their reading logs will be entered to win a raffle prize. 
  • Entertaining educational programs every Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. No registration is needed to attend these programs. No registration is needed to attend any of the awesome programs that run every Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning through June and July.  The more programs you attend, the more badges you earn on your reading log!
To register for the reading incentive program, visit ameliagivinlibrary.beanstack.org to register.
Registration begins May 20. After registering online, there are three ways to track your reading - using our classic paper log (available at Amelia Givin Library), online at ameliagivinlibrary.beasnstack. org, or using the free Beanstack Tracker app (ios or android) on your phone or tablet. You can use one, two or a combination of all three ways to track your progress.
