The Many Rewards Of Reading
Time For The FADL Summer Reading Program
The Fremont Area District Library begins their summer reading program on Friday, June 2nd. All ages are welcome to come in and sign up on or after June 2nd to begin earning prizes for your reading. Children can earn a free pizza, free ice cream, a toy, a free book, honey sticks, Whitecaps and Griffins passes, and entry into the grand prize drawings for an RC car, birthday party at NorthPointe Gymnastics, a trip to Great Lakes Crossings, Detroit Tigers tickets, and more! Teens can earn free pizza from Spanky’s, ice cream from Koffee Kuppe, a free book, and for every book they read, they can enter for chances to win many prizes from local restaurants and stores. Plus finishers will be entered into the grand prize drawing for a $100 Meijer gift card! Adults can earn a free ice cream or drink from Koffee Kuppe, a coupon for seeds or 4-cell veggie or flower from Mellema Nursery, a free book from the Friends Gift Shop, and for every book they read, they can enter for chances to win many prizes from local restaurants and stores. Grand prize drawings are a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card and a $100 Meijer gift card!
The Summer Reading Program is important in helping to prevent the “summer slide,” which is the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made in school the previous year. So grab some books, have fun reading, and come to our “Growing Together Now” (FREE) events this summer!
