School is almost out for the summer, which means the library’s summer reading program is ramping up. The theme this year is “Dream Big – Read!” Between June 16-August 11, 2012, kids who read 8 hours or more are eligible to win a free book and other prizes. Parents and older kids can read to children who aren’t reading yet. You can sign up for the program and get more details at the library or on the OPL website.
There are activities for kids at the Montclair branch all summer long, and a free reading program wrap-up party featuring Circus Bella at the Oakland Museum of California on August 5th.
For teens, the library is offering its Teen Summer Passport program again – teens ages 12-18 can register and then earn points for visiting Bay Area hotspots; writing book, movie or video game reviews; attending library programs; creating a self-portrait; or volunteering.
