Children’s Summer Reading
Birth – 12 years old
“Find Your Voice” with the Summer Reading Program! Beginning June 26, kids up to age 12 are invited to register to read (or be read to) at least 10 minutes a day to earn weekly prizes. Each week participants can learn about different people who have found their voices and express themselves in different ways. Fill out a speech bubble and put it on our door to show us how you found your “voice”, and search around Gates for our Frida Kahlo doll!
