In addition to the Wichita Public Library's Summer Reading Program, both Borders and Barnes and Noble are holding summer reading programs for kids. (These two new programs are only for 12 and under though; Wichita does a program for teens called Teens Read). Here is some information on both programs, which give away free books.
Barnes and Noble: Kids 3-12 read any 8 books while keeping track on them with the Passport to Summer Reading (available to download on B&N's site). After reading and tracking 8 books, each child will get to choose a free book from B&N's list. Find more informaion about this program here. Make sure to turn in the passport between May 25th-September 7th.
Borders: Borders Double Dog Dares kids 12 and under to read any 10 books and write them in on Border's Summer Reading form (available on Border's site). After reading and filling in the form, turn in the form to any Border's location by August 26th to receive a free book. The books to choose from are shown on the page about the program. They range from "Ramona the Brave" to "Hoot" to "Babysitter's Club". Find out more about this program here.
