The Genoa, Harris-Elmore and Woodville libraries have prepared reading programs to inspire their communities to read during the summer months. This year’s theme is Science and Discovery. The libraries have programs for every age group.
The children’s program is called Fizz, Boom, Read. Genoa and Elmore’s program, which began June 9, will end July 31 and is for ages 3-12. Woodville’s program began June 2 and July 26 and is for grades kindergarten to sixth. Both programs keep track of how many hours a child reads and they will be rewarded according to their amount of reading.
This year’s teen program is entitled Spark a Reaction. The Genoa and Elmore program will take place between June 16 and July 28 and is for ages 10-19. The Woodville library’s program runs from June 2 to July 26 and is for grades 7-12. Teens also have the opportunity of participating in an online book club. A new book is read each month and is discussed on the online discussion boards.
The adult program is titled Literary Elements. The program’s participants are required to read a book and submit a review for the Woodville program or fill out a coupon for the Genoa and Elmore programs to become eligible to win a prize. The Elmore and Genoa program began June 9 and runs to July 31 and the Woodville program began June 2 and runs to July 26.
