The Multnomah County Library is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its Summer Reading program and has reached its goal of signing up 100,000 participants.
Summer Reading, which is open to newborns through high school students entering grade 12, continues through Aug. 31, with events including these:
Make a Comic Book Cover: Just because learning to read is serious business doesn't mean that kids should start with serious materials. What's the best genre for beginning readers? Whatever keeps them reading.
Sensory Storytimes: This storytime, which is open to all preschoolers, is especially geared to children with sensory integration issues. Parents are encouraged to talk with a youth librarian before attending.
Read to the Dogs: Children can improve their reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a therapy dog.
