KINGSTON —Sign up for the Summer Reading Program at Kingston Community Library begins June 28 and runs through August 9. The program is for all ages: Adults: Ground Breaking Reads, Teens: Beneath the Surface, and Children: Dig Into Reading.

Adults and Teens: Sign up for the program and get $3.00 in Library Bucks, good towards fines or books from the Book Sale. Each time you read a book submit your name to win weekly raffle prizes. The more you read the more chances you have to win the grand prize, a Kindle, which will be raffled on August 9.

Teens: Log on to the teen website (http://2013beneaththesurface.blogspot.com/) to check out what’s going on, find your school reading list, see what movie is playing, review the books you read, track total pages read, and vote for what color Sarah should dye her hair!

Children: Help us kick-off our Summer Reading Program on Fri., June 28, from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Dig Into Reading with a fantastic Truck Day! Sit in a Fire Truck, a Back Hoe, a Police Car, and more! Sign up to participate in the SRP, pick up your reading logs, and play some games! All ages are welcome!

Sat., June 29 is International Mud Day! Stop by the library between 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. to play in the water and mud. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit! All ages welcome!

We are seeking the following household items to be used for crafts in the children’s room: wooden spoons, men’s/boys’ ties, dish washing soap bottles, colorful socks, and hair scrunchies.

School is out, now what? The Friends of the Library will be selling York’s Wild Kingdom Tickets again this summer for just $13.00! The Friends are also offering reimbursements for museum visits. Simply purchase admission tickets at the time of your museum visit, fill out the reimbursement form you can pick up at the library, include a copy of the ticket receipt, and bring the form and receipt to the library. A reimbursement check will be mailed to you within two weeks. Reimbursement is limited to fifty-percent of the ticket price (up to $20.00) per family group visit. Amusement and theme parks are not covered.
