Bowling Green, KY -- Dig Into Reading is the theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program. The fun begins with a kick-off event at Lost River Cave.

“We love that we’re able to partner with Lost River Cave for this event. It is such a local treasure that connects perfectly with the summer’s theme,” said assistant director Ashley Fowlkes. “Kids of all ages will love exploring their new outdoor classroom, the butterfly garden, the nature center, and other areas. And the ones who register for the library’s Summer Reading Program that day will get an extra bonus - a free pass to visit the cave on their next visit with a paying adult.”

The Summer Reading Program will feature almost two full months of special presentations in June and July, weekly activities at all locations, and incentive prizes for those who love to read. Those who complete the program will win great prizes including free books and t-shirts, vouchers for Hot Rods games, coupons for sweet treats and passes to Kentucky attractions.

Summer Reading is not just for kids; adults can join the fun, too. In keeping with the “dig into” theme, various presentations and workshops will be offered. Events include a workshop on landscaping, canning, and digging out of debt. Other adult events include author Wes Berry discussing his new book The Kentucky Barbecue Book and Dr. Steven Bowman discussing the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Date and Time: Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. until noon.

Location: Lost River Cave

All events are free and supplies provided, but registration is required for some of the classes. For additional details, visit www.warrenpl.org, call 781-4882.
