The Lexington Public Library is encouraging people of all ages to read this summer by offering prizes for those who finish the Summer Reading Program, which includes fun, educational events at each branch.
Summer reading logs are available for every age, from wee readers to adults, at all Fayette County library locations. Readers will keep track of their reading times and turn their logs in. The program lasts through July 31.
All finishers will receive a prize and be entered into prize drawings. The grand prize for children includes a new bicycle plus gift cards to Target, Toys R Us, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Fandango, and Game Stop. The grand prize for adult finishers is an Amazon Kindle Fire HD.
Educational programs for grade school children include:
