“Pop Open a Book” Summer Reading Program runs June 14 thru August 6th

READY, SET … GO! JUNE 14TH THRU AUGUST 6TH

Get those books you’ve been meaning to read in a special stack for Pop Open A Book, this summer’s reading program which starts on Sunday, June 14th and runs through August 6th. 

ALL AGES WELCOME

Readers of all ages are invited to participate. All you have to do is read any book you want, either from your personal collection, our church library, borrowed from a friend or even the public library. Audiobooks count also.

If you’re unable to read, you’re still eligible. Just have someone read to you.

HOW IT WORKS

For every  book you read your name will be entered into a drawing and prizes will be awarded on Sunday, August 9

WHEN YOU FINISH A BOOK …

Since we are not attending church in person right now, you’ll need to send your name and book title (by email or phone) to one of the library volunteers, who will put each entry you submit on a paper Popcorn Kernel and pin it to the church’s bulletin board on your behalf. The more books you read, the better your chances of winning a prize.
