Spokane Library Reading Program Kicks Off for Kids! | Community Spirit
This summer, Spokane kids have the opportunity to earn free books and participate in other fun learning activities through the Spokane Public Library reading program.
The Libraries annual summer reading program, Dig Into Reading, is underway and available at all Spokane Library branches. After sign-up, kids receive a log sheet to keep track of what they read this summer. When they have finished reading 15 books or read 15 hours, readers just have to bring their log sheet in to receive a free book from the Library.
But the activities go beyond just reading. At all Spokane branches, they will show kids how to be archeologist for the day! Kids get to do some hands-on digging for fossils, see an interactive slideshow and see how archeology allows us to learn about the history. This event is taught by the staff of the West Valley Outdoor Learning Center.
If your children are musically inclined they might enjoy the Angus Scott Pipe band and the Japanese drumming band, Spokane Takito, performances in July. Each event will also have a small history lesson on each instrument. The kids might even get the chance to play! Other events include Martial Arts, Computer basics and more.
