...and the reading is easy. Summer reading for kids, teens and adults kicks off this week in Oak Harbor. Children can pick up a bookbag and reading log, and sign up to receive prizes including a free book once they meet their contract.
Teens have it sweet this year - their book reviews are all submitted online. Each review constitutes one entry for a laptop computer, to be given to a lucky Sno-Isle teen at the end of the summer. Oak Harbor teens who submit at least eight reviews are also eligible to win an I-Pod Shuffle. Prizes, programs and refreshments are compliments of the Friends of the Oak Harbor Library and the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.
Here are some of Nancy Pearl's summer reading recommendations for adults - check them out at the library!
