Pawhuska Public Library has kicked off it 2016 Summer Reading Program, with Tuesday and Thursday programs scheduled in the library community room through July 14.

The Tuesday programs are designed for students in grades three through seven, while Thursday’s programs are more suited for pre-K children through second graders. Each reading program starts at 10:30 a.m. and continues for an hour, concluding around 11:30 a.m.

This summer’s theme — “On Your Mark, Get Set … READ!” — promotes reading as exercise of the mind while incorporating healthy activities for getting everyone up and moving, library officials said. Young readers are encouraged “to join in and find out what all the fun is about.”

Reading program’s activities will include daily drawings in June that are part of a”Read for Feed” promotion involving the local Sonic Drive-In and Simple Simon’s Pizza. The Pawhuska City Library is located at 1800 Lynn Ave.
