The Summer Reading Program will continue for the entire month of June. Pre-school through high school are invited to read great books, get a certificate, and have a chance to win some super prizes. Registration for the Summer Reading Program is any Monday – Friday in June, 10:00am – 6:00 pm. The Read-To-Swim program for students also began June 1 and will continue until the pool closes at the end of summer. In the Read-To-Swim program, students read a Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library book at the library for an hour to get a free pass to the swimming pool or a free Dairy Queen ice cream cone.
