Library Summer Reading Program offers prizes for kids

Moffat County Library’s 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 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 library at 570 Green St.

Summer story times will run at 10 and 11 a.m. Thursdays at the back of the library.
