Summer Reading program returns to OCL

TOMS RIVER – Registration is now open for the Ocean County Library’s annual summer reading program and people can begin logging the books they read starting June 17.

The reading program helps people track their reading and then rewards them for their effort. It is open to readers of all ages.

Once a person has read five books he or she will have their name submitted for a prize drawing at each branch.

The summer reading program is a good way for students to avoid the “summer slide” of losing two months of reading achievement.

The summer reading program will include dozens of activities for children to encourage them to read books that are based on common themes. Activities include puppet shows, musical performances, fossil digs, “Bugs on the Go” from Insectopolis, and magicians.

This year’s children’s theme, for ages up to 12, is “Dig Into Reading.”

The theme for teens, ages 13 to 18, is “Beneath the Surface” and for adults it is “Groundbreaking Reads.”

This year, for the first time, the summer reading program will feature many books as “ebooks,” that can be viewed online or on the go.

The summer reading program will end Sept. 7     

This program is free and open to the public.

Visit the library’s Web site or check with a librarian for recommendations to start your summer reading adventure.
