Summer Reading Program
Summer Reading Program - “Imagine Your Story"
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 Read Squared software. Registration opens on June 6, 2020, during the Drive Through Summer Kick Off. 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. Prizes can be pickup up via our curbside service. Register for an account by clicking the "ReadSquared" button below. The library offers a variety of programs, for all ages, in addition to the rewards program. This year, we are providing supply bags that include everything you need to complete the activities at home. You can view our instructional videos online, or ask for a DVD to be added to your bag. Our Summer Calendar is available online, via the events tab, or pick up a paper copy at the library. Any programs that require registration due to limited materials or space will be noted on the calendar. Happy Reading!
