Summer Reading Programs for Children Are at Your Library

June 20, 2009 – The Department of Planning and Natural Resources announces that the Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums in conjunction with the Friends of the Public Libraries will host territory-wide library summer reading programs.
The programs are based on three themes: Cultural Connection – children will learn about various cultures; Book-A-Trip Around the World – children will travel to many places around the world through a book; and Catch the Reading Bug! – children will be encouraged to build a love for reading.
Young readers interested in participating should visit their local public library and have a parent/guardian complete a registration form. During the summer, the participants will check out books to read and participate in activities such as story-time and scheduled performances. Workbook journals will be distributed filled with a recommended reading list for the particular age groups and a journal to record the books read during the summer.
On St. Thomas, the Enid M. Baa Public Library invites children up to 17 years of age to participate in the 7th Annual Summer Reading Program sponsored by the Friends of the St. Thomas Public Library. This year’s theme is Book-A-Trip Around the World. Registration for the program began this week and ends on July 8. Registration forms are available at Enid M. Baa Library, the St. Thomas Bookmobile and online at Friends of the St. Thomas Public Library Web site www.fostpl.org.
For more information, contact Symra Chinnery, Baa librarian, at 774-0630.
More information and a complete schedule of the summer reading programs are available on the library system Web site www.virginislandspubliclibraries.org
