Reading is So Delicious - the 2013 Summer Reading Program

Murphy Cat and Mouse ReadingThe Palos Verdes Library District is serving up a menu of great reading activities as part of the 2013 Summer Reading Program, Reading is So Delicious!

Summer is the perfect time for kids to enjoy a story, read some funny riddles, or dig into some nonfiction to learn about a topic they love. With no tests, book reports, or dioramas required, kids are reminded of the fun of reading – a crucial development in a child’s reading life. Just as important, reading over the summer also helps school age children maintain and improve their reading skills over the long summer months.

School age children and even preschoolers and babies can keep track of the number of minutes they read or listen to and earn patches, similar to a boy scout badge, but unique to PVLD. Preview our all new patches here! Kids can start reading June 1 and start collecting patches June 10.

Kids also love the exciting weekly events each branch offers in June, July and August.  Our activities start June 7 and  feature amazing magicians, hilarious jugglers, music, crafts, and plenty of fun with books, reading, and even food! For details on days, times and programs, visit our calendar at

Starting June 17, kids will have fun with  PVLD’s famous Riddle of the Week. In summer, children coming to the library can solve a riddle using a secret code and get a small prize. The Riddle of the Week is designed so that preschoolers and older kids have fun while they improve their reading skills or early literacy skills.

No one is too young or too old to enjoy books and reading at the library. PVLD offer special summer reading  programs, prizes and events for grown ups too!  The Summer Reading Program at PVLD runs from June 1st to August 23rd. Just visit any PVLD library to find out why Reading is So Delicious!
