Children and their families are invited to celebrate 'Dream Big -- Read' Avon Grove Library's 2012 Summer Reading Program. In honor of this program, the library will be hosting a Summer Reading Kick-Off Party on Saturday, June 9 beginning at 10a.m.

Fun activities for the entire family are highlighted by a performance called 'Magicomedy' with Richard and Joanne Gustafson, internationally-acclaimed entertainers at 11a.m. It's Magic…It's Comedy… It's fun for all ages! Also enjoy stories, crafts, refreshments and more on June 9!

Register for the Summer Reading Club --$5.00 registration fee per child/$15 per family.) FreeT-shirt for the first 150 kids who register.

You will also be able to sign up for our summer programs beginning at the Kick-Off Party. The exception is Science in the Summer, that registration begins on July 2.

Use the book log you get when you register, to record the books you read, or are read to you over the summer. Then bring the log back to the library each week to receive a reading prize! Throughout the summer, we'll be offering a variety of programs, drawings, prizes and contests, so stop by the library as often as possible!

The Summer Reading Kick-off Party is open to all children accompanied by an adult. The Avon Grove Library is participating in The Collaborative Summer Library Program, a grassroots consortium of states working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children at their public libraries.

Register for the 2012 Summer Reading Program in person at the Avon Grove Library located at 117 Rosehill Avenue, West Grove, PA. For more information on 'Dream Big-- Read,' please call the library at 610-869-2004 or visit
