The Washington County Public System announces its Summer Reading Program, 2021, “Tails and Tales.” The Summer Reading Program helps kids learn all summer long and is a fun way to satisfy summer reading requirements.
From June through July, you’ll be able to enjoy live performances, and read to earn coupons from local area restaurants. Guaranty Bank, Shipley Donuts, Pasquales/Frostop, Retzer Enterprises (McDonald’s), Sonic, Hardee’s, Garfield’s, Little Caesar’s and Domino’s all have donated prizes. Programming is provided by The Junior Auxiliary of Greenville and Planter’s Bank.
The Washington County Public Library System Summer Reading Program will feature entertainers this summer at both the William Alexander Percy Memorial Library,
and the Leland Public Library. Story Time and crafts will be held at branches in Avon, Arcola, Glen Allan and Metcalfe.
Readers from Birth through 12 years of age are welcome to participate. Register for the program at your local branch starting June 1 to keep track of reading activities and to earn a chance to win one of two new bicycles with helmets generously donated by Guaranty Bank.
Non-reading children in the Read-to-Me division must have 20 books read to them to complete the requirements to enter the drawing and to receive a Certificate of Completion from the library. Children in grades 1-2 must read 12 books. Children in grades 3-4 must read 10 books. Children in grades 5-6 must read 5 books. Guaranty Bank has donated one bicycle for each division.
