MIDLAND, Texas — Bookworms will be satisfied this summer, as the Midland Library started their summer reading program on June 1st.
"Reading books they get points. We have performers that come in throughout the summer, so if they attend those they also get points," said Education Coordinator Hannah Johnson. "If they complete the program they get in a drawing for a bicycle."
On Monday, as parents walked up to register children for the program, the kids received a shirt that they could spray paint and decorate themselves.
"We did this program last summer with him," said mother Brandy Bullock. "I think it's a great tool to get kids reading skills up throughout the summer."
The library has numerous other events scheduled within June and July but the Summer Reading program concludes July 31st.
