Theresa Public Library’s 2018 Summer Reading Program runs June 11 – August 3, 2018.
Preschool through Age 12: get a bookmark and for every 15 minutes you read put a sticker on it. When you have 10 stickers on your bookmark, choose a prize from the Library Treasure Boxes. You will also earn a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of our weekly prize drawings.
Teens will earn a dollar for every book they read (up to $10) and receive a raffle ticket
for a chance to win the weekly Joel’s ice cream coupons and to enter the end of the summer
teen prize, a Kindle Fire.
June 11th thru the month of July participate in our Community Treasure Hunt Rock Project.
Decorate a rock to hide in the community so people can find it or you can make a pet rock.
Originally started in Washington, the basic premise is that hand-painted rocks are hidden around the community. The finder of the rock takes a photo, posts it to the local “[place name] Rocks” Facebook group, and then can either keep the rock, leave it where it is or re-hide it in a new location.
