Teton County Library

Kids, start your (reading) engines.

The Teton County Library summer reading program starts Saturday. This year's theme is Tails and Tales.

The library's free book fair will run from June 5 through 12, then continue weekly throughout the summer. Bundles of books, or "Grab-and-Go craft kits," will also be available at noon Thursdays, but supplies are limited. 

Like in previous summers, kids can log minutes reading and win raffle prizes. Go to TCLib.org/summer for information and to log reading time. You can also log reading minutes manually on a piece of paper, like a blast from the past.

Every 60 minutes of reading earns a raffle ticket, and kids can complete other activities for raffle tickets. New activities come out every Thursday.

Raffle tickets earn you chances in the grand prize drawing, which will include Lego sets, giant stuffed animals, binoculars, art kits and Camelbak packs, among other prizes.

If you're above eighth grade, you can participate, too. Every hour of reading earns bagel bucks and chances to win gift certificates to local establishments.
