Carlsbad City Library Summer Reading Program Begins June 22

Carlsbad CA— The teen program is designed for students from seventh to 12th grade. The children’s program includes children ages three through sixth grade. Readers can pick up a reading log at any city library location to record what they are reading. Books, magazines and newspapers can be counted on the reading log. Teens and kids can take their reading logs and report to a city library as often as once a day. Each report earns a ticket for the weekly prize drawing. After seven reports, readers receive a summer reading program T-shirt. After 10 reports, readers receive complimentary passes to area museums. Prizes are distributed while supplies last. Special events for children and teens are also planned at each library location.

The reporting hours for the teens and children’s programs are below.
