The Louisville Free Public Library's summer reading program for children and teens was supposed to officially end today, Saturday, August 10. Earlier this week library staff announced that they would extend the summer reading program until the start of classes, more specifically to align with the first day of school for Jefferson County Public Schools, which is Tuesday, August 20. Now, your children and teens have until August 19/20 to return their summer reading logs and redeem them for some awesome prizes. Click here to view the Great Day Live! interview with the library's summer reading guru, Tracy Thomas. My children received their prizes a couple of weeks ago and are sporting their really cool thinking caps, one of the prizes that went along with the summer reading theme: 'Build Your Brain'. We also love our Library Champion sign and proudly have it displayed in our front yard. Be sure to stop by any of the 18 public library locations around the city/county to turn in your summer reading folder. It's a great way to end summer and start the school year off with a bang!
