The Mountlake Terrace Library will be encouraging kids to “Dig Deep” this summer as their Summer Reading Program begins on Saturday, June 29, with a program presented by the Pacific Science Center’s Science on Wheels. The program will give kids a glimpse of rocks, fossils, volcanoes and all the geological forces at work in our region.
The Pacific Science Center presentation is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300-58th Ave. West.
The event serves as the kickoff for the library’s incentive program to get kids to read during their summer break. Participants have a chance to earn free books, Everett Aquasox baseball tickets, and chances to win a bicycle for successfully reading a certain number of books or pages this summer. Reading logs are available at http://www.sno-isle.org/assets/3936/3936_20130510010157.pdf for kids to keep track of their reading.
