Summer Reading Theme 2018: Libraries Rock!

The Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library has an annual Summer Reading Program to keep kids and teens reading through the summer months. The program is filled with fun events and programs as well as a challenge to read as much as possible in order to earn prizes.

As the kids read this summer, they’ll keep track of their progress with their Reading Logs. At the end of the program, a librarian will add up all their reading hours and turn them into Book Bucks, which can be used to buy prizes from our Prize Shop! There are additional perks as well; reading at least 10 hours earns a $5 gift certificate to the Beach Plum (serving ice cream and more!). Reading at least 20 hours earns two tickets (child + adult) to New England Dragway’s “Jet Cars Under the Stars” show, with the opportunity to meet the driver of the Jet Truck and the Governor of New Hampshire! Turn in completed Reading Logs by August 1st to receive prizes and Book Bucks. The prize room will open Tuesday, August 7th.

Our thanks for generous donations of prizes goes to New England Dragway, The Beach Plum, Storyland, Water Country, The Woodman Museum, Santa’s Village, The Children’s Museum in Dover, Hilltop Fun Center, Captain’s Cove Adventure Golf, and O’Neil Cinemas.
