It’s Sum­mer Read­ing Time Again

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Islander -

If you can read just one book a week for five weeks, the li­brary near you has a prize wait­ing.

The state’s an­nual Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gram aims to get ev­ery­one in Cen­tral Oahu to put their nose in books be­tween June 2 and July 6, and regis­tra­tion be­gins May 28.

Chil­dren (in­fants through grade 6) who sign up will “Dig into Read­ing” and even get a hands-on gar­den­ing kit to in­spire their cu­rios­ity about all things un­der­ground and un­der the sea.

Teens (grades 7-12, plus 2013 grad­u­ates) will be vy­ing for an iPod shuf­fle and other awe­some tech in­cen­tives as they read “Be­neath the Sur­face” (of the earth, ocean, his­tory, etc.). Adults (age 18 and older) have a chance to win an e- reader as they thumb through “Ground­break­ing Reads” on all top­ics.

The Friends of the Li­brary and dozens of foun­da­tions and cor­po­ra­tions are back­ing the sum­mer pro­gram with prizes and funds, some of which will un­der­write lively per­for­mances by sto­ry­tellers and artists.

To reg­is­ter and get de­tails, visit or call the near­est pub­lic li­brary — Wahi­awa (622-6345), Mililani (627-7470), Kahuku ( 293- 8935) or Wa­ialua ( 637- 8286) branch.
