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 logreading 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 andKennel 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.

According to information provided by the library, the program is based on evidence that the more books children from birth to age 5hear read to them, the more prepared they will be to learn and enjoy reading upon reaching kindergarten.

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

Last summer, the library had 186 kids participate who read more than 2,869 books — adding up to 244,492 total pages — over thecourse of two months.

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.
