Children and families can visit the Desert Foothills Library to choose what they want to read as part of a summertime mix of activities and reading. Participants receive one point for each minute spent reading, which can be redeemed for prizes. Points will allow you to register to win tablets, gift cards, mystery prizes and much more.

“If your family loves to read, the Desert Foothills Library’s summer reading program is for you. With prizes and family-friendly events, there is something to engage everyone who enjoys the magic of a great story,” said Colleen Crowley, Head Librarian at Desert Foothills Library.

The aim of the program is to reinforce the literacy skills and positive reading habits during the summer months. Reading for at least 20 minutes a day helps build a strong lifelong reading habit.

Along with reading, there will be summer youth events including Tween Minute-to-Win-It games, clay art fun and a drawing class. Exciting science events abound with live animal programs, Lego® builders club, CreateSpace and more. There will be something for everyone with programs such as Emoji Fun, cooking classes and Yoga classes.
