The library will be hosting a summer reading program from May 30th-August 15th. Our theme for elementary and middle school students will be “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!” and our theme for young adults will be “Get in the Game, Read.” Any braille, audio, or large print book borrowed from the library within the time frame will count toward a participant’s total. In addition to borrowing physical copies of books, participants can also download digital audio books from BARD at http://nlsbard.loc.gov, or use the BARD Mobile app available from the iTunes app store, the Google Play store, or the Amazon App Store. Patrons with refreshable braille displays can also download braille books through either the app or the website. To learn more about BARD and BARD Mobile, please visit in.gov/library/3811.htm.
Prizes will be awarded based on number of books read. We will again be offering iPod Touches to our top readers. All books borrowed from the library must be returned before prizes can be awarded. Only books borrowed or downloaded from the library will count towards a reader’s total. Talking book patrons between the ages of 4 and 21 are eligible for the summer reading program. Please direct any questions regarding the summer reading program to Laura Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-232-0609/1-800-622-4970.
