Reading program for kids begins at Georgetown library

GEORGETOWN — Dig into Reading at the Georgetown Peabody Library. Sign up for the summer reading program and the Bruins’ You Read You Score Program.

The program for Georgetown kids, ages birth to sixth grade, has begun at the Georgetown Library or online at www.readsinma.org/georgetown.

Keep track of how much time you read, or that someone reads to you. Report your progress online or bring your reading log to the library. The prizes are: 10 hours of reading, free book; 20 hours, a prize package from the Topsfield Fair (including a ribbon, free admission ticket for children 8 through 13, a voucher good for a free hotdog and soda, and free ride tickets); 30-plus hours, prizes above and a second book.

For Topsfield Fair prize, readers must report their hours between Aug. 1 and Aug. 13. They can continue reading for the additional book prizes until Aug. 23. The prizes will be available at the library Aug. 20 through Sept. 6.

The Wall of Reviews

Tell us what you think about the books you read. Come into the library and write a review or post it on your online summer reading account. The reviews will be hung on the wall in the children’s room. Every time a review is submitted, the name will be entered into a drawing for a Jabberwocky Bookshop gift certificate.

Dig into Reading is sponsored by Georgetown Peabody Library, Friends of the Georgetown Peabody Library, Massachusetts Library System, Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, The Boston Bruins, Jabberwocky Bookshop, Georgetown Cultural Council and Topsfield Fair.
