Build a better world by joining summer reading
This year’s theme for the Summer Reading Program is “Build a Better World,” and we are excited to be part of it. Your Garfield County Libraries are hosting events and giving away prizes to participants throughout the summer — and we’d love for you to join the fun.
Kids, teens and adults are all invited to register at any of our six locations. You’ll receive a reading log bookmark to track the days you read. Once you have read for five days you can return the bookmark to any Garfield County Library, where you will be given a prize and a new bookmark.
At the end of the summer, we will also draw for grand prizes. Teens who complete all eight reading logs are eligible to win a grand prize — which is different at each library. Children who complete all eight reading logs are eligible to win four passes to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park (each library will give away four passes).
There will be weekly district-wide events for children featuring a wide variety of exciting performers, including Nature’s Educators, music, magic and dancing. There will also be an array of programming for teens this summer that includes duct tape, movies and toy hacking.
This year the Adult Summer Reading Program will offer great prizes. Every two weeks there will be a drawing at every library for a $20 gift certificate. Just turn in a reading log and you’ll be automatically entered. If you complete all eight reading logs you’ll also be entered for the grand prize drawing at the end of the summer for two passes to the Iron Mountain Hot Springs. Four passes will be given away at each library.
