Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program - “Build a Better World"

          The Malvern-Hot Spring County Library offers a program during the summer months which children are encouraged to read. Younger children can receive credit by being read to, and when older children read to their younger siblings, both children receive credit! You can register your child through the Wandoo Reader software. Registration opens on June 1, 2017. You can register online, through the Bookmobile, or pick up our summer reading log at the library. Prizes and incentives can be earned to inspire and motivate children to continue developing reading skills throughout the summer. If you participated last year, you can use your existing account information to log in. The library offers a variety of programs, for all ages, in addition to the rewards program. Our Summer Calendar will be available online and at the library by the beginning of May. Any programs that require registration due to limited materials or space will be noted on the calendar. Happy Reading!
