The Kent Memorial Library is in the midst of its summer reading program, but it’s never too late to join, according to children’s librarian Wendy Taylor.
“There’s always room for more,” she said. “The more the merrier.”
There are still two weeks to for preschoolers through grade 12 to grab a good book, read and record it on the list and win a prize. It only takes a few seconds to keep a record of the great reads of the summer.
Taylor notes the books can also be used for the reading requirements for the schools. In addition to reading this summer, the library features many fun programs and currently still has room in the following programs :
