Ready for a challenge this summer?
Young readers can sign up for the St. Lucie County Library System’s Summer Reading Challenge starting Friday.
Students in kindergarten through grade five who read at least six hours — or six books — can take their completed logs to any branch library and receive a children’s book to keep. Those who log a dozen hours, or books, over the summer will receive a reading medal and a voucher for a pair of St. Lucie Mets tickets.
Teens, there’s a challenge for you, too, this summer.
Young adults in grades six through 12 who have read 12 books can report on their favorite part of the book in their personal logs. When they turn in their logs, they’ll be entered into their branch’s grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire. Winners will be drawn on Aug. 11.
Kicking off summer activities will be the Super Readers Show on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at Morningside Branch Library; 2 p.m. at Fort Pierce Branch Library; June 8 at 10 a.m. at Lakewood Park Branch Library; 2 p.m. at Zora Neale Hurston Library.
