To participate in the program, children are encouraged to read, or have read to them, 10 books.  Librarians and volunteers will be available daily to share stories, chart books, and award prizes.  Some of this year’s prizes are sponsored by Blake’s, Mel’s Funway, McDonald’s, and Ben and Jerry’s.  Registration for the program will begin on June 21st.
