Fort Bragg Library is participating in the READING BY DESIGN Summer Reading 2017 program from June 10th through August 19th. Those participating will be required to sign-up so reading can be tracked. Sign-ups begin at our Summer Reading Kick-Off on June 10th. Once you’ve signed-up, either online or in person at the library, you’ll receive a log to keep track of your reading and, depending on your age category, will receive incentives at different levels and prizes along the way. Adults, you won’t be getting level incentives but once you’ve completed your log, turn it in to the library and you’ll be entered in the raffle for our special adult prizes.

Summer Reading kicks off with a day of fun at the library beginning with Book Dominoes followed by a Book Craft @ 10:30; Carnival games, face-painting and fruit pops 12-1:30; then Magical Nathaniel @ 2 pm. Sign-ups will begin that day at the kick-off and will continue throughout the summer. The first sixty, age 5-12 years-old, to sign-up will get a *free Legoland ticket (*in person, at the library. Legoland tickets are not available for online sign-ups).

You can visit these links for the age appropriate category you’re interested in. We’ll be updating each page as plans click into place. So get to reading and have fun!
