Pet lovers of all kinds are invited to join “Paws, Claws, Scales and Tales” at the Mineral County Public Library. The 2006 Summer Reading Program is open to young people, preschool through young adult, with programs, prize drawings, story hours and more. Families are invited to join the Read-to-Me portion of the program.

Preschool (ages 3 to 6) story hours will be every Tuesday beginning June 6 through August 22, from 2:30 to 3:30 PM, at the Superior Library.

Programs for other children will be advertised throughout the summer, advance registration for each will be necessary.

How the Summer Reading Program Works – Official Kick-off Friday, June 9, 2:30 P.M. at Superior Library:

1. Register any time.

2. Fill out a form with your name, address, phone number, grade and school. You’ll receive a log book to record the titles of books you read this summer. For every 5 hours of reading, a ‘paw print’ will be issued, for you to add your name and phone number. This will be put into a pot for a drawing.

3. Sign a contract with the librarian to decide how many books you plan to read, how many pages you plan to read or how much time you plan to spend reading this summer.

4. Everyone who completes the program by finishing their contract will be invited to a final party with certificates and rewards for all.

Although in-library programs will be offered only in Superior, any child in Mineral County may contract to read, and win final prizes.

For more information, call the library at 822-3563. Hours: Mon, Tues, Thurs., Fri.: Noon to 7 p.m. Closed Wednesday and weekends.

The library welcomes children of all abilities. All programs are free of charge.
