Gunn library offering summer reading program

Gunn Memorial Library’s junior library in Washington is offering its summer reading program Aug. 13.

Children can sign up to participate and will receive a bag filled with goodies like coupons for bowling and baseball, a pencil, bookmark and a reading journal.

Participants will ese the journal to keep track of time spent reading, being read to or even listening to books on CD.

For each hour of reading, children will receive a ticket to enter drawings to win the many prizes donated to the library by local business and patrons.

In addition to the reading program, a “The Amazing Li Liu Acrobat Show” will be held July 5 at 6:30 p.m. and “Karate” with Frannie Caco and the Sparrow Dojang will be held July 12 at 6:30 p.m.
