Summer Reading Brings “Oceans of Possibilities” at Fremont Library
The Fremont Area District Library kicked off its Summer Reading Program on Friday, June 3rd. This year’s ocean-themed program for all ages is called “Oceans of Possibilities.” Within the first day after the kickoff party, 295 people of all ages were signed up. We think this might be the most people every signed up the first day, so THANK YOU to our community and sponsors!
In the Children’s Department, children had fun playing with bubbles, applying ocean tattoos, and making some fun ocean crafts. Kids were excited to pick out their books and start earning prizes for reading! Prizes for children this year include a coupon for free Elsie’s ice cream, a free movie pass to Fremont Cinemas, a personal pizza at Spanky’s, a shark glider toy, a free book, and passes to White Caps and Griffins games—not to mention being entered into the grand prize drawing for a trip to Great Lakes Crossings when they finish the program!
Teens had a kickoff party in the Community Room with a showing of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. Prizes for teens this year include a coupon for free Elsie’s ice cream, a free movie pass to Fremont Cinemas, a personal pizza at Spanky’s, a free book, and entry into the grand prize drawing for a $100 Meijer gift card. Each book teens read also gives them entry in their choice of many other awesome prize drawings (see www.fremontlibrary.net/teens for more info).
Prizes for the adult program include a free ice cream from Koffee Kuppe, a free movie pass to Fremont Cinemas, a free book, and entry into the grand prize drawings for a $100 Meijer gift card and a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card. Like the teen program, each book adults read also gives them entry into their choice of prize drawings from many wonderful sponsors!

The Summer Reading Program encourages families to read together so that kids maintain or improve their reading skills throughout the summer and enter school ready to succeed in the fall. Visit the Fremont Area District Library to get signed up and start earning prizes. The library will offer many exciting events to attend this summer, so visit www.fremontlibrary.net or the Fremont Area District Library Facebook page to see what’s available!
