The Summer Reading Program sign up at the Dvoracek Memorial Library in Wilber has begun with "Build a Better World" activities planned. The program runs from June 1 to July 31 at the Minden and Zephyr Cove branches. Please contact the library for more information at 283-4544.

Research shows that children who participate in summer reading programs consistently score higher in reading and math. Woodland kids can take advantage of the Summer Reading Program, set to return in June.

The program features special guests each week: the Mark Woods Fun Show ("Fix It With Magic") on June 12; the Good News Llamas on June 19; artist Michael Albert on June 26; Dan the Music Man on July 3; Ironwood Wolves on July 10; and the grand finale: Madcap Puppets, Monkey See Monkey Do on July 17.

"We place a lot of emphasis on our summer programs because they are so important to the overall educational progress of students". Families are invited to join us for all these programs, and more! "We also want to provide broader learning possibilities for kids in addition to reading, since summer vacation often signals an end to these for a few months".

Meanwhile, Yolo County Library's Summer Reading Program runs from May 26 to August 19. Adults who read three books also can win prizes.

Last year, between 150 and 200 youth and adults signed up to participate in summer reading programs at the library.

LaRochelle told the children that he always loved the summer reading program when was growing up. There will be a Children's Program for ages 14 and under, a Teen's Program for ages 15-18 and an Adult Program for those older than 18.
