Summer Reading Program 2021

Attention all Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles:
Life is busy, but we’re here to help. Evidence shows that children who do not read during the summer fall behind in the classroom the next school year. Did you know that Abbeville Memorial Library holds a Summer Reading Program for children ages 5-16?
Each year has a different theme, and this year it is “Tails and Tales.” During June/July, we will have books to read, weekly presentations by entertainers, and programs for children in groups aged 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16.
Bring the children to the library, check out books, and help them keep up with their “Reading Log.” Their Reading Log records all the books they read and is turned in at the end of the program. After turning in, we go through the log and check to make sure that the books are age-appropriate for the child. Each book is awarded points, and the child with the most points in each age group will be considered the top reader. We will be awarding a $25 Gift Card for Barnes and Noble for the top reader in each age group, and everyone who participates will receive a “Goody Bag.”
In May, registration forms become available at the library. These forms are also a consent form to permit your children to attend the weekly presentations that we hold in the Boys & Girls Club auditorium. We hope to see lots of children there and look forward to helping you make sure your child succeeds!
