Shelve cries of boredom by cracking open a book
Younger kids can sign up for the Dream Big reading program at local libraries and win prizes, such as AquaSox tickets and gigantic cookies, just for signing up.
Then read lots and lots of books and keep track of your reading minutes to win more big prizes: How about having the bookmobile come right to your house?
And when you visit your library to return and pick up more books, you can take part in some great activities: Meet the Reptile Man, build elaborate paper airplanes or laugh out loud with "Noiseguy" Charlie Williams.
Teen readers can "Own the Night" and find out how to win an iPad, iPod Touch or Sno-Isle LED sunglasses.
Teen readers can submit reviews of the books online to be entered to win one of the prizes.
The libraries also are offering programs all summer on things near and dear to teens' hearts: zombies, survival skills and gaming tournaments.
Check with your local library to sign up for the reading programs, Call 877-766-4753, or go to www.sno-isle.org for sign-up instructions and a calendar of events listing all libraries' programs.
