NORTH MIAMI PUBLIC LIBRARY GEARS UP FOR THE 2018 SUMMER READING PROGRAM

North Miami, FL – 6/7/2018

Books galore, learning, enrichment activities, special guests and prizes are in store for youth participating in the North Miami Public Library’s 2018 Summer Reading Program, themed “Libraries Rock!”  

This year’s Summer Reading Program runs from June 8 – Aug. 4. Sponsored by the Friends of the North Miami Public Library, the program is designed to prevent summer learning loss, by creating opportunities for youth to read books of their choosing at their leisure and participate in hands-on, educationally enriching activities. The array of supplemental programs intend to encourage youngsters to explore new interests, while developing a love of recreational reading.  

NoMi Library offers opportunities for the entire family to participate. Young readers, up to age 18, must first register in-person at the NoMi Library. Then, all library visits are automatically logged during computer use and when books are checked-out, making readers eligible for prizes at the end of the summer. Parents, guardians and camp leaders can sign-up to read to pre-reading stage children. 

At the end of the summer, NoMi Library staff will announce the winners at the annual Grand Finale Family Fun Day. Summer Reading participants will be entered into drawings for gift cards, age-appropriate technology and book giveaways. 

Family Fun Day is scheduled from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the NoMi Library, located at 835 NE 132nd Street, North Miami. This event is free and open to all. It will include food, music, story time and visits by Clifford the Big Red Dog, Pete the Cat, Curious George and more.  

Summer Reading Program registration is available at the NoMi Library during regular business hours. The library will also launch its new teen-focused Instagram page, in conjunction with the 2018 Summer Reading Program. For more information about summer activities at the library, call 305-891-5535, visit www.northmiamifl.gov/library, or follow @NoMiLibrary on Facebook.
