Sign Up Online
To prevent summer learning loss and keep academic skills sharp, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings along with students and community supporters kicked off the 2016 Mayor’s Summer Reading Club.
The free eight-week program, which runs June 4 – August 6, encourages daily reading of books, newspapers, magazines, audiobooks and e-books. Presented by the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program, the Mayor’s Summer Reading Club is a family affair, open to children and adults of all ages.
Sign up begins May 17th in person at any of the 29 Dallas library locations, the Dallas Public Library’s Bookmobile, online or at the kick-off parties held June 4-10 at all branches. (Check with each local library for dates and times of kick-off parties.) Every child who signs up will receive a free book.
Young club members can earn weekly incentive prizes – from books and Pizza Hut gift certificates to zoo, circus, theater, museum and baseball tickets – by reporting the number of hours or books read in person at any Dallas Public Library or online. Kids and adults who meet the grand-prize drawings qualifications will be entered for a chance to win tablets, early-literacy games, hotel stays, restaurant certificates, movie passes and more.
