Summer Reading!  On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!

Everyone from newborns to seniors are invited to participate in this year’s summer reading program. Just 20 minutes a day is all we ask for you to start your way toward earning a prize!  It is shown that kids who read just 20 minutes avoid the “summer slide” and return to school ready to learn.

Using Wandoo Reader kids and teens choose an avatar, gain power and level up while counting up minutes to win prizes all summer long!
