The 2011 Summer Reading Program continues through Saturday, July 23, with a number of special events and programs in branches throughout the county.
The program is divided into three themes: “One World, Many Stories” for children 12 and younger; “You Are Here,” for teens 13- 18, and “Novel Destinations,” for adults.
Children and teens are encouraged to read for two or more hours each week, which qualifies them to receive an entry ticket for the Grand Prize drawing. Grand prizes include a Miami Dolphins VIP Training Camp Experience; Miami Dolphins VIP Game Day Experience; Miami Dolphins Memorabilia; gift cards to Barnes and Noble, Gamestop, Best Buy, Toys ‘R Us, among many others.
For adults, the weekly challenge is to “travel” to a novel destination through books, ebooks or VHS/DVDs. Prizes include a Barnes & Noble Nook eBook Reader and $100 gift certificates to Publix, Barnes and Noble, or Olive Garden restaurant.
Special summer programs include magic and juggling shows, sing-a-longs, a manga workshop and much more. Everyone is invited to register at their nearest branch. The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Miami Dolphins Foundation with additional support by the Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library.
