BLACKFOOT — The Blackfoot Public Library is signing up kids all this week for their free summer reading program. The program begins this week and will run until July 31. The theme for this year's program is "libraries rock." In honor of the theme, the library is now decorated with rock music-inspired decor.
There will be weekly music-themed challenges, activities and prizes for reading program participants.
The program will also include story in the park days, music in the park days, and adventure days including a free afternoon at the Blackfoot pool.
When kids register for the program, their names will be automatically entered into the weekly drawings for a prize. The first drawing will be on Monday, June 18.
"We would like everyone who wants to join the reading program to sign up this week," said Lisa Harral, the head librarian. "That way, every kid will be eligible for all the awards and have a chance to participate in all the prize drawings."
The library will be happy to answer any questions about the "libraries rock" summer program. Contact the library at (208) 785-8628.
