Highland Park Library’s 2015 Summer Reading Club is almost here. This summer the Library is recruiting super readers for a reading club full of fun, adventure, and learning as we discover that “Every Hero Has a Story.” Starting Friday, June 5 children of all ages can register at the Library for the Summer Reading Club and pick up their reading logs to keep track of the number of books they read or someone reads to them.
Once children read five books they will receive a free circus ticket voucher for the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. When children have read and recorded the titles of ten books, they have completed their log and will receive a certificate and have a book donated in their honor to this summer’s selected recipient organization, Ronald McDonald House of Dallas.
The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) exists to serve and sustain families when serious illness or injury strikes the most cherished part of their lives, their children. The books donated through the Summer Reading Club will help to grow the library on-site at the RMHD. For more information on RMHD, its mission, news, events, and volunteer opportunities, please visit www.rmhdallas.org.
Throughout the summer, the Library will host four special events that will help children be a community hero, be a global hero, be an eco-hero and be a superhero. The summer event series is generously sponsored by Christine McKenny and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. The Library’s Summer Reading Program will end on Friday, July 31 with a Superhero Training Camp.
Summer reading helps children retain their reading skills and sets them up for a great start to the next school year.
