Summer Reading Program 2018

Libraries Rock!

Attention all kids from preschool to High School, get ready for 50 days of reading, beginning May 24th, the last day of school.  Register anytime from May 24th through July 1st and get your reading log & a sign-up prize. 

Every time you sit down with a book from Gilman Public Library and read, write down the amount of time on your reading log.  Bring the reading log to the library each week, beginning June 4th, and get a prize.  We've got some fun prizes, tasty prizes, and keep-you-challenged prizes.  Also, you will receive a slip of paper for each hour you have read.  Sign your name and drop it in the jar by the prize basket you hope to win.  The baskets will be given away at the ending celebrations.  Those celebrations are scheduled for July 16th for tweens & teens and July 18th for preschoolers and younger elementary children.

For our preschoolers and kindergartners, it works much the same, with a parent, babysitter or an older sibling reading to the child.  The reading log is then marked with how many books, rather than time.
