Summer of Reading slated to return

The city of Wolfforth Library returns its Summer of Reading program this year.

The program will kick off on May 25 with a “Story Walk” for participants to stay active and read while walking on a safe course.

The event, which is themed “Build a Better World,” also returns its reading competition. Readers compete by grade level and log reading information during library hours as a part of the summer reading contest.

This year’s theme focuses on community involvement, good citizenship, building and construction.

Although not all events have been announced, the library has made plans to host Jolynn Payne from Rocking Paw Dog Training and Kennel Suites as she presents a program titled “Pup Patrol” to teach community children about dog bite prevention and pet ownership. The library also returns its 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten event.

Every Friday, the library is slated to show a family-friendly movie at noon and a storytime reading every Wednesday at 10 a.m.

At the end of the contest, after all winners are announced by grade level, a Star Reader is chosen.

For more details or to sign up, call the library at (806) 855-4150.
