Douglas County Public Library’s summer reading program starts June 1
The Douglas County Public Library invites all children and teens to participate in the 2017 Summer Reading Program. “Build a Better World” is this year’s theme with a children’s program for ages 0 to 11 and a teens’ program for ages 12 to 17. The program runs from June 1 to July 31 at the Minden and Zephyr Cove branches. Children and teens who participate will earn prizes while they maintain and build their reading skills during summer break. The online registration form can be filled out and printed from home through the library website, douglas.lib.nv.us, or at either branch.
The Summer Reading Kick-off event will be held on Tuesday, June 6, at the C.V.I.C. Hall, 1602 Esmeralda Ave in Minden.

A children’s used book sale will be held before and during the Kick-off event from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The book sale is courtesy of the Friends of the Library and the Library Foundation.
