The El Paso Public Library is kicking off the start of their Summer Reading Club beginning on June 4 at all El Paso Public Libraries.

The new program is designed to keep children of all ages reading during the summer vacation. The program is free and open to children of all ages and encourages kids to read whatever they want.

Children will be asked to read either 8 books or for 8 hours a week depending on their reading levels. Readers will record their reading activity on a log sheet which needs to be turned in to the library in July. Those who meet or exceed the reading goal will receive a certificate of completion and free prizes and incentives.

As part of the Summer Reading Club, the El Paso Public Library is hosting more than 300 special events and activities designed to engage, entertain and educate families during the summer. All of the associated activities are free and they offer everyone safe, educational opportunities throughout the summer.
