Summer is upon us and so is the Rocklin Library Summer Reading Program. This year's theme is "Read for the Win!" and during June and July there will be lots of events and programs that show why the library is such a great place to read, learn, and discover. There will be music, dancing, juggling, wild animals, and a whole lot more to entertain kids and adults of all ages.
There's also a serious side to summer reading. Research has shown that reading over the summer prevents summer reading loss, and that students who read recreationally outperform those who don't.
Children and teens of all ages can come into the library to pick up a reading log to track their progress and earn a ticket for every fifteen minutes they read to try to win one of our great prizes.
But don't worry: it's not all about the kids - adults can participate in our game to read for prizes, too! Stop in and pick up your next great summer read (or two!) and get a reading log for everyone in your family while you're at it. Who knows? You could be our next winner!
Excitement and fun await those who journey to Rocklin Library to participate in the Summer Reading Program! Our game runs June 1 - July 31. For a complete list of events, please visit our website at www.placer.ca.gov/library. We hope to see you soon!
The Rocklin Friends of the Library participated in the Big Day of Giving on May 3rd.
The Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour giving challenge and celebration of philanthropy. The community is asked to put their money where their heart is.
Our goal was to raise $3,000 to purchase multiple copies of popular titles of adult, teen and children's books (AKA "Lucky Day Books"). We were able to reach our goal despite problems with the donation portal. Thanks to all who helped us to reach our goal.
For anyone not able to donate on that day, you can still make a donation at http://www.rocklinfriends.org/donations.html.
