Library gears up for summer reading

Registration for the Summer Reading program at Eureka Public Library, 202 S. Main, is underway.

The theme for this year’s summer reading program is “Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover.”

There are four age groups for registration this year: children up to grade eight, young adults in grades seven-12, college-aged students, and adults over 18.

Reading programs will start on June 1, but there is no registration deadline this year.

In an effort to promote the program, library staff and a dinosaur helper visited Enchanted Gardens last week to hand out Summer Reading registration forms and goody bags to neighborhood children.
