Palos Verdes Library District 2019 Children’s Summer Reading Program
The Palos Verdes Library District offers reading activities for children as young as 6 months through grade twelve. Members may read any books and also try some reading activities that are fun, exciting, informative and funny. Children can track their progress online or use classic paper reading logs. Go to https://pvld.beanstack.org/reader365 to keep track of your children’s reading and help them earn cool prizes and online awards while they enjoy reading stories. Registration is open now, and the program starts today, May 31, 2019. You can either go online with the link below to sign up, or you can sign up at the Library.
This year they are kicking off the summer with a special event today, Friday, May 31, 2019, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., at the Peninsula Center Library. This will be the first kick off event for the Summer Reading Program and they will have games, crafts and information about all the opportunities that are available for summer fun in the community.
Kids going into grades TK-5 will earn achievement patches, similar to boy scout badges but unique to PVLD. Teens grades 6-12 earn Amazon gift cards, so they can purchase more of their favorite books. Research shows that the most reliable predictor of school success is being read to during early childhood. Reading to children from an early age can help close the vocabulary gap and prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills they need to succeed. Most importantly, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.
Summer is a great time for your children to maintain and improve their reading skills and find topics that they love. Each branch of the Palos Verdes Library District will have exciting weekly events in June, July and August. Some of these activities include jugglers, magic, balloon fun, and crafts. Weekly activities begin the first of June and end on August 18, 2019. To find the summer activities list at the various libraries, click here .
