Summer reading signups begin June 24 at all six branches of the Sussex County Library System (SCLS).

The theme for 2019, A Universe of Stories, will be celebrated with themed book displays and plenty of programming. In addition to weekly story times, there will be special, space-themed events ranging from making planet pillows and galactic slime, to several programs on the Space Race, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Neil Armstrong’s historic moon walk.

There are lots of Summer Reading incentives and prizes too. Children as young as six months through entering third grade can collect small prizes, stickers and raffle tickets each week for every book they read or have read to them. Tweens, teens and adults also earn raffle tickets for each book read or listened to, and can earn extra tickets for attending programs as well. Prizes range from outings and gift cards for tweens and teens, to a full-size telescope for adults. This year the library is also giving away 100 tickets to Family Fun Day at Skylands Stadium, and 60 tickets to Astronomagic for Muggles at the Longo Planetarium.

Programs and prizes are still being added. For the most up-to-date information stop by your local SCLS branch or go to sussexcountylibrary.org/summer19.
