Children may register for the Vacation Reading Club until July 5. They will receive a reading club folder to record books read and a kickoff bag.
Certificates will be awarded to any child who reads at least 10 books and to preschool children who have 10 books read to them.
Any book of 100 or more pages will count as two books.
