Bridgeport, CT -- Libraries Rock! The Bridgeport Public Library is looking for readers of all ages to join our summer reading experience beginning Monday, June 18, 2018. The more you read the more chances you have to win cool prizes! Register online at www.bportlibrary.org and keep track of all the wonderful books you read this summer. Pre- readers receive board books, crayons and a coloring book. School age children will have an opportunity to pick from our treasure box of prizes and earn books. Teens will obtain a ticket and snack for every book read (maximum 10 books) to enter our random drawing for a chance to win a set of BEATS headphones. Second and third prize winners will receive SkullCandy earbuds. Teens who read 4 and again when they reach a level of 8 books will get a free book. The headphone drawing will take place at the end of the summer. Adults, who enter their books electronically, will be able to enter a weekly online random drawing for gift cards to local businesses.
Bridgeport library locations will offer an array of themed programs for all ages during the summer starting July 9, 2018. Themes include Kindness, Dance, Music, Earth, Comics, and Art. Programs will revolve around a different theme each week with crafts, magicians, yoga, movies, dance instruction and more! Events are free and open to the public.
As a continuation of last year’s successful program please continue to consider kindness. The public is also invited to donate school and pet supplies at all Bridgeport library locations from June 18-July 13, 2018. Visit our website at www.bportlibrary.org for more information on these events and to register for our reading program.
