IMCPL summer reading program

I was at the Franklin Road Library this week and picked up a May events calendar. I was very excited to see that the summer reading program is going to begin very soon!

Books checked out starting May 17th - tomorrow - can count toward summer reading points when turned in on or after June 7th.

The program this year is Read to Feed the Mind and Heart. With a logo like a Campbell's soup can, this year the program is helping Gleaners Food Bank of Indianapolis.

Along with prizes of books, toys, Fever tickets, bowling packs and more, your children will have the option to help local families in need. By bringing in a food donation, 20 points will be added to the reading card. Or they will have the option to donate 20 points already earned, and Kroger will make a contribution on their behalf.

Either way, those in need will benefit, and your child will know what it feels like to make a difference.

There is a kickoff event on May 23rd at Central Library downtown to get the program started this year. You can find more information on the IMCPL (Indianapolis Marion County Public Library) website.
