2011's Summer Reading program for children birth through those entering 5th grade will begin Monday, June 20th at HTFL. Ms. Anny is visiting Haverford Township schools to let students know what's happening at the library - so you might hear about her visit from our little ones!

Summer is a time to relax and have fun and the Summer Reading program at HTFL is designed to help keep kids reading and visiting the library throughout their vacation!

The Summer Reading Club is a reading incentive program. Children sign up for the program in the Children's Room, read at home, and visit the library once a week to "check in" and receive a prize to help keep them enthusiastic about reading all summer long!

In addition to the incentive program, there are activities happening at the library all the time for children of all ages. Stop by for a Make-and-Take Craft or to enjoy one of our storytimes or a movie screening.

The entire schedule of events for the whole family is available online at EventKeeper.

Summer Reading 2011 is brought to you with the generous support of the Friends of the Haverford Township Free Library.
