From The Librarian’s Shelf…
Wednesday, June 3, 2009 • Posted June 3, 2009

The Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library has Summer Reading Programs to encourage young readers. Children can Read-To-Swim thanks to the sponsorship of the Mason National Bank. The children read a library book for an hour at the library and get a coupon for one free session at the swimming pool or a free Dairy Queen ice cream cone.

There is also the Texas Summer Reading Program sponsored by the library and the Texas State Library. Children get prizes when they register and can get a certificate and enter a drawing for prizes. Registration starts Monday, June 8 which is also the date for the library’s Open House. Junior Classic books purchased with a donation from the City of Mason will be displayed as well as other new Easy, Junior, and Young Adult books which have arrived just in time for Summer. There will also be a drawing for four free tickets to Schlitterbahn at the Open House. Any student is qualified to enter the drawing.

And of course it’s not all about the young reader. The library has plenty of new Fiction, Non-Fiction, Large Text, and Audio Books for adults.
