Everybody knows that kids should be read to and should read constantly. Most teachers will encourage parents to keep their kiddo's engaged in some sort of summer reading program.

The Laramie County Library is hosting a Read-A-Thon for all children who want to participate. This is a great way to get your kids reading, if they're not already. Lot's of fun and prizes await them as a reward for all of their work.

The event kicked off yesterday, August 6 and goes through August 9, 2014. You still have time to get them enrolled.

For more information about this and other programs at the Laramie County Library, call 307-634-3561.
