June 18 - August 11, 2018 | North Bend Public Library Summer Reading Club Events

North Bend Public Library is inviting all readers to participate in their annual Summer Reading Club starting June 18. This year’s theme is “Libraries Rock!”

Participants will be given an age appropriate bingo card. Each square requires the reader to complete a task, ranging from “Read a Graphic Novel” to “Design a book cover.” When a young reader completes 5 in a row, a prize will be awarded and a ticket entered for a weekly grand prize drawing. Blackouts will earn an extra ticket. Adult readers will earn a ticket for weekly drawings for every row completed. Drawings will begin Saturday, June 30, and continue through August 11.

Summer storytimes for children and families will begin June 26. Lapsit Storytime for babies under 2 years of age, Tuesdays at 10:30 am. Preschool Storytime, Thursdays at 10:30 am.
