Wyoming library programs promote summer reading

The Wyoming Area Library has summer reading programs for all ages.

Any adult who reads to a preschooler can sign up to track the time spent reading.  For every five hours, up to 20 hours total, there is a prize: a bookmark, a finger puppet, a place mat to color, a magnetic photo frame, and a treat from the local Dairy Queen.

Summer story time at the library for ages 3 to 5 will be held Tuesdays at 10:30 from June 18 through July 23.

School-age children who keep track of the hours spent reading will receive a pencil, a bookmark, a bone eraser, a newspaper, and a book bag.  Dairy Queen will also provide treats for these students.

Craft days for ages 8 to 10 will be held Wednesdays on June 12, 19 and 26, and July 10, 17 and 24.

Teens and adults receive a starter kit which includes a bag, a bookmark, a form to fill out when a book is read, and a treat.  Extra forms are available at the library.  Grand prizes for adults are two gift cards for $25 at Shell.  Teen grand prizes are two gift cards at Target for $25 each.  Weekly drawings are held for other prizes.

Summer fun activities end Aug. 8.
