Library launches summer reading program

Durango Public Library’s summer reading programs for children, teens and adults will run from Tuesday through July 31. Register online at www.Durangogov.org/Library or in person at the library.

Infants through elementary school-age children are eligible to participate. Children who log 10 hours or 600 minutes of reading earn a free book, a lanyard, a day pass to the Durango Community Recreation Center, a chance to win one of two $50 gift cards from Maria’s Bookshop and a chance to win a grand prize bag.

Each additional 10 hours of reading earns them another entry in the grand prize drawing. The program also includes fun free events in June and July.

Middle and high school students who log 20 hours of reading earn a free book, sunglasses, a day pass to the Recreation Center, a chance to win one of two $50 Maria’s Bookshop gift cards and a chance to win a grand prize bag. Each additional 20 hours of reading earns them another chance to win the grand prize.

Active participants in the children’s and teen’s programs are eligible for weekly prize drawings.

Adults age 17 and older may enter each book they read this summer for entry in the adult weekly prize drawing.

Summer Reading programs are made possible by Friends of the Durango Public Library, Durango Parks and Recreation and Maria’s Bookshop. All Durango Public Library programs are free and open to the public.
