Kenton Library Kicks Off Summer Reading Club

The Kenton County Public Library is celebrating 92 Days of Summer Reading (www.92days.org) this June through August. There is a club for everyone in the family:

Adults:  for every book read or program attended, a raffle ticket it earned. Drawings for gift card prizes held weekly.

Teens: Open to anyone starting grades 6-leaving 12!

·         Read any book, graphic novel, eBook, audio-book, magazine…

·         Record what you’ve read online at www.kentonlibrary.org/src or fill out a form at your library’s reference desk.

·         One winner per branch will be drawn every week for prizes like:

o   iPod Touch

o   Beats Headphones

o   Kindle Fire

o   Nintendo DS

o   Makey Makey

o   King’s Island Passes

o   Grand Prize: iPad Air

Children ages 2 -12:

Children can pick up a reading log at any of the three library locations. Once children read or listen to five books, they earn a book. Once they read 10 books, they win a summer reading club t-shirt which was designed by artist C.F. Payne. Children will also be entered into a grand prize raffle to be drawn at the end of summer for their choice of a Nintendo 3DS or Kindle Fire HD. Children can continue to read for more chances to earn entries into the grand prize drawing.
