2014 Summer Reading Program Experiments with Science Themes

VOORHEES, NJ – June 5, 2014 -- Summer reading programs at the Camden County Library and libraries across the nation will take a totally new direction in 2014 with a focus on science, technology and math (STEM).

FIZZ BOOM READ is the children’s theme this summer while teen and tween programs will be organized around the theme of “Spark a Reaction.” Both children and teens can earn the chance to win prizes as reading incentives by keeping track of their reading between June and early August, 2014.

Participants can register at their local branch (eight locations) or online after which they can pick up a summer-reading log to record every hour spent reading or, being read to, for those too young to read independently.
