Library Summer Reading Program offers prizes for kids
Moffat County Libraries’ Summer Reading Program is in full swing and will run through Aug. 7.
The youth program's theme is "Every Hero Has a Story." Participants color in a star for every 25 pages or for every one book read. There are three levels with 20 boxes, and kids can select a prize at the library for each level completed. Parents can also color one star for every two books read to a child.
The teen program's theme is "Escape the Ordinary," and works similarly to the youth program, except that teens check a box for every 100 pages read.
Sign up online or at the library to participate. Access to e-books, magazines and audiobooks is also available online at http://www.colorado.gov/moffatcounty.gov. Click "Departments," then "Library."
The library will also host its summer Youth Club for ages 8 and up from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays at the Craig branch at 570 Green St.

Governor’s Summer Job Hunt program launches website for teens
Young people can find information, tools and resources at the Governor's Summer Job Hunt program's new website — http://www.colorado.gov/gsjh.
The recently launched website offers information on job fairs, how to locate businesses that are hiring, how to write a great resume and make a great impression in a job interview. It is also a resource for parents who want to ensure their high school and college students have a safe and successful summer job experience.
"A part-time job provides valuable training to students, preparing them for the challenges they will face in the years ahead," Gov. John Hickenlooper said in a press release. "It adds a unique companion piece to classroom learning. Workplace experience teaches young people the value of commitment, about gaining confidence and working with others."
Teens can also get help finding summer jobs free of charge at state and county-run employment offices called Workforce Centers.
