The Family Summer Reading Program this year is themed "Oceans of Possibilities". Each participant reads and records their time on a reading log. After 12 hours, turn in the reading log to the Library to receive a completion prize (while supplies last), coupon packet and a Completion Celebration ticket for the Newport Aquarium on July 30th. Reading logs are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 29th. Completing the 12 hours of reading enters you into the Grand Prize drawings at the end of the Summer. There are additional chances to Read-On for more chances to win.
The Completion Celebration will be located at the West Jefferson Community Center on Saturday, July 30th. The Newport Aquarium is brining Coral Cat Sharks for 2 similar shows at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Participants may choose which show to attend. There will also be water tag, so please bring a change of clothes or swimwear. One adult without a completion ticket may accompany children 10 and under to the event. Adults accompanying children 11 and over must complete the reading program to receive a free entry ticket. Prices for those who do not complete the Reading Program can purchase a ticket the day of the event: $10 Adults, $5 Children.
Each Friday in June and July (except July 1st) will be special events for the kids.
