Summer programs at Camas and Washougal libraries offer incentives, fun events
Digging into reading
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
A flyer from the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District delivers the following message: “Get Smarter: READ!”Those who sign up for local “Dig into Reading” programs get an added bonus: Prizes to reward minutes read.
The Camas and Washougal public libraries both have reading programs in place to encourage children and teenagers to read during their school break.
"Youth who read during the summer will practice their reading and comprehension skills, and are likely to start school in the fall more prepared," said Ellen Miles, Camas youth services librarian. "That leads to smart kids who will grow up to be doctors and scientists who will change the world for the better."
