Summer reading programs continues


There’s still time for SanTan Sun area readers of all ages to earn free prizes through Chandler Library’s summer reading programs sponsored by Friends of the Chandler Public Library through July 30.


“Read, Play, Win!” rewards children for reading with free prizes. Kids who sign up for the program receive a voucher for a ticket to an Arizona Diamondback’s game. To participate, pick up a game board at any Chandler Public Library, read and claim prizes.


“You Feed Your Mind and We Feed Your Body!” is a reading program for those ages 12 to 18. For every four hours of reading, teens get a prize and an entry into the weekly drawings. When they have read 16 hours, they receive an invitation to one of the Chipotle Wrap parties, and they can enter into the grand prize drawing, which includes a laptop with Microsoft Office; Nintendo 3DS; Microsoft X-Box Kinect Bundle or a $250 Visa gift card.


Adults can get into the action, too, by reading five books before the July 30 deadline, which earns them a chance to win an eBook reader. Chandler Public Library branches include: Hamilton at 3700 S. Arizona Ave., Basha at 5990 S. Val Vista Dr., Downtown Branch at 22 S. Delaware St. and Sunset at 4930 W. Ray Rd.
