Starting July 1st at the North Palm Beach Library! Sign up for the Summer Library Club and join us for free, literacy based programs for the entire month of July
|How it Works:|
1. Pick up your reading log, bag and other goodies at the children's desk.
2. Let your child use the reading log to keep track of every time they spend reading or being read to by placing a sticker in one of the circles.
3. Once most of your circles have stickers, celebrate your child's summer of reading by stopping by the Summer Library Club's End of Summer Pick-Up and receive a free iced treat for your child!
