“Reading is its own reward” is the message for the 2016 summer reading program at the Point Roberts library.
There are programs for kids, teens and adults, all with a bingo theme. Participants sign up at the library and get a bingo card with each square holding a different idea to help choose something to read. “It’s very flexible so everyone can set their own goals and choose what they want to read,” said librarian Rose Momsen.
“When you’ve met your goals, you get to choose a brand new book,” Momsen said.
The library is also hosting a number of special events this summer. The kickoff for the summer reading program on Saturday, June 18 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. will include an indoor game party for families, including board games, pool, shuffleboard, foosball and more.
On Saturday, July 9 at 3 p.m., the Welcome Marionettes are back to present this year’s show, Peter and the Wolf. The traditional puppet show is sponsored by the Friends of the Point Roberts Library (FOPRL).
Then, on Saturday, August 6 from 2 to 5 p.m. is the Point Roberts Book and Author Festival, also sponsored by FOPRL, featuring readings and presentations by local authors and a chance to get autographed copies of their books.
