MEXICO – The Mexico Public Library will offer a Summer Reading Program for kids ages 2 to 14 from Monday, June 20, through Saturday, Aug. 20. The theme is “Go Where the Wild Things Are!”

The reading program will be the incentive-based. Depending on the participant’s age, for a specified amount of time spent reading either by oneself or with an adult, incentive coupons will be offered.

The coupons are for treats donated by local businesses. By keeping track of time spent reading, kids can earn incentive points even while away on vacation or at camp.

Interested kids can sign up at the library anytime. When signing up, each participant will receive a “Go Where the Wild Things Are!” packet. The packet will contain a reading log, bookmark, stickers, pencil and a recommended reading list.

At the end of the program in August, a special event with entertainment, food and prizes will be held.

Preschool Story and Craft Hour for children ages 2 to 5 will be held at 10 a.m. every Tuesday throughout the summer. The library will also add a summer story and craft hour for children ages 6 to 12 at 1 p.m. every Tuesday. For more information, people should call 364-3281.
