Readers of all ages are invited to explore building and creating during the Florence Community Library’s 2017 Summer Reading Program. “Build a Better World” is the theme of this year’s reading program, which began Monday, June 5 and will run all the way through Friday, July 14!
Participants will be able to select a prize for every 100 minutes of reading. Participants who read 1,000 minutes or more during the program will receive an official Certificate of Completion for the 2017 Summer Reading Program.
For the first time, the library will offer two ways for children and teens to record their reading time: either on the traditional paper logs, or online. Participants must choose only one format. To track and record minutes online, please visit http://.florence.azsummerreading.org
The library will host activities throughout the Summer Reading Program:
Mondays, 2 pm – 4 pm: Bricks ‘n’ Blocks
Tuesdays, 2 pm – 4 pm: Gaming (ages 11 – 17)
Wednesdays, 10 am: Family Storytime

Explore different levels of coding, with your work saved from one week to the next so that you can build and develop your skills!
