School may be out, but keep those kiddos reading this summer! Here’s a list of reading programs going on in El Paso:
Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program
Children can earn a free book through Barnes & Noble’s 2014 Summer Reading Program. The program runs May 20, 2014 through September 2, 2014 at local Barnes & Nobles. Kids entering grades 1 – 6 can pick up a reading journal to log their progress in stores or print one out at home. Children who read 8 books during the program can turn in their reading journal and receive a free book from a pre-selected list of titles.
For all the details, visit the Barnes & Noble website.
