Creativity is the focus of the summer reading programs at both Washington and Scenic Regional libraries. "Be Creative @ Your Library" is the theme at Washington, and "Imagine, Create, Participate @ Scenic Regional Library" is the theme at Scenic.
At Scenic Regional Library branches, sign up for the Summer Reading Program begins the first week of June.
Kids are required to read 15 minutes per day to earn prizes. Those who finish by Aug. 1 get their names included in an end-of-summer drawing.
At Washington, kids can begin signing up for the program May 30 and because of changes in the rules of the program this year, kids need to sign up within the first three weeks in order to have a chance at finishing, said Ruth McInnis, children's librarian.
