Reading and science will team up for a fun summer reading program at the Neligh Public Library.
Activities will kick off on Thursday, June 12 and continue until July 31. This year's theme is "Fizz, Boom, Read!"
Weekly programs will be held on Thursdays for ages 6-8 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and ages 9-12 from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. (bring sack lunch). Friday story hour is set to begin at 10 a.m. for ages 0-5.
Other summer reading activities include Book Bingo for all ages, activities, experiments, games, monthly family nights, monthly "Movie Saturdays" and the annual street dance in August.
Nebraska residents, 3 to 18 years old, who sign up for the summer reading program will be eligible to win $529. The Nebraska Educational Savings Trust (NEST) will deposit the money into a college savings plan for 15 readers, five in each of Nebraska's three congressional districts. Each winner's library also wins $250.
