The LFPL summer reading program starts June 1st and, to help get area children in the reading spirit, there will be a kick-off event at the main library branch on May 31 from 10 AM through 12:30.
Kids from birth through 5th grade can be enrolled in the “Read Big” program using the form available at any library location after June 1. Each participant who read 10 books by August 9th will receive a number of prizes, including a backpack, passes to area attractions such as the Kentucky Science Center, Frazier History Museum, a Louisville Bats baseball game, the Rauch Planetarium, and more. Participants who complete the program will also be entered to win one of the grand prizes, including a $500 Barnes & Noble shopping spree, a backpack full of school supplies, 4 passes to the Louisville Zoo and more.
