Summer Reading Club events for kids
Posted Date: 5/21/2012

The Grand Prairie Library’s Summer Reading Club will run from June 11 to August 5. This year, we want you to “Get a Clue @ Your Library!”

The program will kick off with the “Rock and Read” indoors/outdoors party at the Main Library on Monday, June 11, from 10 am to 12 noon. In the library’s parking lot, kids can “touch the trucks” as they view vehicles from around the city. Bulldozers, emergency vehicles, cherry pickers and more will be on display. Inside the library, readers of all ages can sign up for the Summer Reading Club – we have programs for teens and adults, too!

Kids aged 0 through 12 can earn prizes and coupons as they read over the summer.

Throughout the summer, there will be free activities for all ages, including storytimes, movies, performers, and more.
