Love it! I miss our summer reading programs from our last home, though. Much bigger library system. But this one will be fun, too.

The kids love to read. Unfortunately, the books they get as rewards are usually not very good. One year, the only thing my DD was interested in taking home was a dictionary.

We always sign up. They do lots of cool activities thorughout the summer, like a big kick off party and stuff, but after writing it all down for three different children each night I get a little annoyed. I pretty much read everyone the same books b/c we all lounge in my bed for storytime, but grabbing the list and writing down the 4 or 5 books we just read for each boy is a bit of a pain.

 We love the one that's in the next town over, they do all sorts of fun stuff all summer with the reading programs. The one in our town offers a reading program but doesn't do anything other than give them a package of stickers once they read their 25 books. Don't get me wrong we're not in it for the prizes but we would like to have more activities and fun stuff here instead of driving out of town for it.

Eh, I'd like them better if ours gave better prizes, LOL. Anything I get I always give to my boy (except a canvas tote bag I got). They haven't announced any plans for this summer's yet though, at least not from looking at the website. Since getting my Kindle Fire I haven't been to the library in ages (and I buy from Scholastic all the time).
