2015 Summer Reading Club
"Every Hero Has a Story"
As summer draws to a close, stop by the Chester Springs Library to bring in your reading calendar and receive your reward. The more
stamps you have, the higher the value of your reward. Remember, you have been keeping track of how much time you read each day by putting a
sticker on your calendar for every day that you read for 30 minutes or more. At
the end of each week, we hope you came to the Library with your reading calendar to get a stamp on your calendar for every 5 stickers. The Summer Reading Club
is for children of all ages and ends on Sunday, August 16.
Here's what's going on in August. Registration is required for all classes. Click here to register and for more information.
