Every Hero Has a Story Summer Reading Club
for Children
 
Children, infant to eleven years of age, can participate in the Vestal Public Library's 2015 Summer Reading Club! When you decide how many books you will read or listen to this summer, we will provide you with a reading log to keep track of the books you read.
 
There will be prize drawings every week, starting the week of July 6 and ending the week of August 10. Winners will be chosen on Friday mornings. Weekly prizes include Barnes & Noble gift cards, toys, and coupons for local businesses. Any child registered for our summer reading program can enter these raffle drawings once per week. To increase your chances of winning, attend any of our children's programs for bonus raffle tickets. See below for more information about these programs.
 
You may return your reading log to the Youth Services Department between Monday, August 3 and Friday, September 11 in order to receive a certificate and either a book or small prize!
