SUMMER READING 2018

The Giddings Public Library’s annual Summer Reading Program kicks off with a registration event from Monday, May 21st—Tuesday, June 12th! Every child who registers will receive a book to record their reading. There are prizes given for each level of the program a child completes! We also have optional educational programs put on once a week, starting June 13th. These special programs will feature all types of exciting opportunities including: live animal encounters, take home crafts, hands on experiments, and competitive games.  

This year’s 2018  Collaborative Summer Library Program, “Libraries Rock!” provides opportunities for children of all ages to find valuable rewards from reading. This free program is co-sponsored by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and includes weekly reading activities and events for children ages 3-12.  Due to requests from our patrons, we will also be extending an opportunity for reading rewards to our new Early Literacy group ages 18 months – 2yrs., and to our new Teen Reads program for ages 13-18. There will be no additional programming for the EL readers this year, however, the Teen Readers can attend our monthly Teen Scene program every Third Thursday of the month.             

"We registered exactly 250 children for last years’ Summer Reading    program, exceeding the previous year’s number by almost 20%.” said Library Director Pamela Hutchinson. "This year, we expect to see the children of  Giddings top that record again and meet more of their reading goals than ever before." Local businesses, Lee County citizens, school faculty, and officials praise the library continually for its efforts to help local school children      maintain and improve their reading skills.

Summer Reading is a FREE program that can provide a whole summer’s worth of family fun! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to receive event reminders so you never miss out!
