Garfield County libraries offer Summer Reading Program

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Starting soon, Garfield County Library branches are offering free entertainment and reading incentives for children, teens and adults during the annual Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme for children is “Catch the Reading Bug.” The theme for teens is “Teen Reads Summer Tour!” and adults are encouraged to “Transform @ Your Library!”

Programming begins the week of June 9 with “Ann Lincoln’s Magic Bug Show,” featuring a real dog (with imaginary fleas). Ann delights her audience with comedy, magic and juggling, and welcomes all ages.

Teens are invited to learn from an expert during a two-part photography workshop with Post Independent photographer Kelley Cox. The Teen Treasure Hunt also begins on June 9 and offers a chance to compete for awesome prizes, such as a digital camera or an MP3 player. More information on the teen programming can be found at
