A Free Program Designed For Kids and Teens to Read and Have Fun
The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District’s Club Read kicks off on Monday, June 1 and continues through Saturday, August 15.
Stop by any library branch to pick up a reading log starting June 1. Each age group has their own log: birth to 5 years of age, 6 to 11 years of age and 12 to 17 years of age.
Read either 20 books or 10 hours and receive a book from any Young People’s Library desk at any Library District branch. Turn in the completed bookmark reading log for your prize.
Entertaining programs throughout the District will help toddlers, children and teens enjoy the summer. Club Read is co-sponsored by Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation.
