Read Up For Summer!

Don’t let the “Summer Slide” affect your kids this summer — keep them reading, learning and having plenty of fun along the way.  Here are some great ways to do that:

Kenton County Public Library: The Kenton County Public Library kick-off celebrations take place Saturday, May 30, at three locations.  At the Erlanger Branch (401 Kenton Lands Road), families can enjoy pizza from Snappy Tomato Pizza at 1 p.m., followed by beach-themed activities and games.  At the Covington Branch (502 Scott Blvd.), there’s more pizza, along with sno cones from Kona Ice, cotton candy, and loads of activities, music and games, all from 1 – 4 p.m.  And at the Durr Branch (1992 Walton-Nicholson Road), kids and parents will have a ball with carnival-style games, bounce houses, balloon sculpting, tethered hot-air balloon rides, and more pizza.  The fun takes place from 3 – 6:30 p.m.  Visit to sign up!

Boone County Public Library: The Boone County Public Library wants to know What’s Your Superpower?  Summer reading features a new partnership with Boone County Schools, and a combined youth program for ages 0 – 17.  Kids earn a book after their first five hours of reading, and after 10 hours, they can choose from a superhero cape, a tumbler with straw, or five Library Bucks to be used at book sales or to pay library fines.  Plus, kids will earn an entry into the grand prize drawing for a tablet.  Adults can get in on the fun, too, with their own weekly prizes.  Stop by any Boone County Public Library location or register at

Campbell County Public Library: Campbell County Public Library offers Summer Reading for kids, teens and adults in 2015.  Sign up at your local branch and then keep an eye on their web site for programs that focus on crafts, fitness, education and fun!  Kids enjoy storytimes, Super Saturdays with their families, and afternoon Adventure Club programs that cover everything from literature to science experiments.  Teens can log reading hours to win prizes while adults can earn prizes by attending summer programs.  Get the full scoop at
