Dig Into Reading! Information for Parents
The Library's Summer Reading Program is in progress -- so far we've registered over 1,100 children! SPR runs from Thursday, June 6 - Saturday, August 3 and it's appropriate for children of all ages. It's a fun early literacy start for young children, and studies show it is one of the best and most effective ways for school age children to reduce summer brain drain.
Register in the Children's Room or online any day throughout the summer. Kids of all ages read or are read to for chances to win coupons, books & prizes (while supplies last; all prizes are subject to availability and may change at any time).
Weekly prizes for "Ten Book Check Out" will include gift certificates to the Akron Zoo, Cuyahoga Falls Parks and Rec or the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad. Detailed information will be available at the time of registration.

Thanks to the generosity of The Friends of the Cuyahoga Falls Library, the Children's Room has seven new touch screen game computers, just in time for the start of Summer Reading Program on June 5! Five of them are AWE Early Literacy Stations with games that are appropriate for children ages 3 - 8. And we have two additional new AWE AfterSchool Edge computers with games for children ages 8 - 12. So when the heat index is over 100 this summer and you need a place to stay cool, the Children's Room is the perfect place to read, play and relax!
