Geared for children who completed kindergarten through fifth grade, there will also be activities and a reading club for teens (those who completed sixth – twelfth grade) and adults as well as pre-school activities for those ages 2 – 6.
One popular program is the Reading Challenge. It will begin on Tuesday, June 1st and continue through Friday, July 15th. For preschoolers, the challenge will be based on number of book titles read. Other age groups (K – adult) will be based on the time spent reading, not the number of books read.
Minimum amount of time for each category is Kindergarten through 3rd grade - 15 minutes daily, grades 3rd – 6th – 30 minutes daily, grades 6th – 8th - 45 minutes daily and grades 9th -12th – 60 minutes daily. Third (3rd) and Sixth (6th) graders are welcome to participate in one of two different groups depending on their individual reading skills and interests. Adults should read a minimum of 90 minutes per day.
Participants are encouraged to sign up for the program by calling 296.1148, visiting the Library page at www.plainviewtx.org/library or stopping the by the Library at 825 N. Austin to sign up in-person.
In mid-May, an email invitation for the ReaderZone app will be sent to track reading minutes and statistics. Those not wanting to download the app may obtain paper logs from the Library during normal library hours.
