Middletown Library offers summer reading program

The Herald Bulletin

MIDDLETOWN, Ind. — The Middletown Public Library will transform itself into the Wild West when its annual Summer Reading Program, “Reading Round-up,” kicks off in late June.

Patrons may register for the program from May 28 to June 14. The Reading period is June 17 to July 25.

When patrons register, they select a prize book from among dozens of books, kits and games. A special prize — (30) $10 Itunes cards will be reserved for children ages 13 to 18.

The amount of reading necessary to complete the program depends on the patron’s age. Adults must read five books, while young children read 20. School-age students select books at their reading level or higher. Pre-readers will get credit for books that are read to them.

Events will include a children’s Cowboy Night around a campfire and a visit to Joyce Minnick’s new cactus garden for snacks and a western craft.

The program is open to all library patrons in good standing. The children’s party will feature Randy Erwin and his “Singing, Yodelin’ & Trick Ropin’.” He was featured in Disney’s “Home on the Range” film. The party will start at 10:30 a.m. July 27.

For details, contact the library, 780 High St., Middletown, at 354-4071.
