FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monterey Public Library, in partnership with Monterey’s Recreation Department, presents “Summer Reading: Read for the Win!” our annual program to encourage children to read during the summer and maintain the skills they learn during the school year. Children earn prizes for reading and receive free books and coupons to local businesses.
The Summer Reading Program opens with a Kickoff Party on Saturday, June 4, from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. on the Colton Hall lawn, with music, crafts, games and prizes. Musical performances, puppet shows and other fun activities will continue through the end of the program in late July.
This program is for families with babies through children in 6th grade. The library also offers Summer Reading activities for teens and adults. Check the website for details about these programs and other library events. All Summer Reading events are free.
Monterey Public Library is located at 625 Pacific Street, Monterey. For more information call 831.646.3933 or visit www.monterey.org.
