The City of Rio Rancho and its Library and Information Services Division’s Summer Reading Program is almost here! Online registration begins at the libraries’ website, http://www.riorancholibraries.org on June 1. The Summer Reading Program kick-off date is Wednesday, June 7, at the Loma Colorado Library, and Thursday, June 8, at the Esther Bone Memorial Library. The program will run until July 31.
This year, the summer reading theme is “Build a Better World” and throughout the summer there will be programs and activities for all ages focused on this theme. More information about the Summer Reading Program and these individual programs can be found by visiting the libraries’ website or by calling either library (505-891-5013 for Loma Colorado/505-891-5012 for Esther Bone).
All summer reading participants will receive a themed summer reading water bottle when summer reading kicks-off at either Rio Rancho library. Gifts will be subject to availability. All members of the community are invited to earn prizes by reading books and having fun at the library. Children and teens will have the opportunity to earn books and enter into a drawing for a Premiere Cinema (teen) or Albuquerque BioPark (children) themed gift basket. Adults will earn entries in weekly drawings for amazing prizes! The more you participate and read, the better your chances of winning.
The registration gifts are generously donated by The Friends of the Library of Rio Rancho. Other summer reading community partners include Sandoval #76 Masonic Lodge and the Rio Rancho Public School librarians.
The Loma Colorado Main Library is located at 755 Loma Colorado Blvd. and the Esther Bone Memorial Library is located at 950 Pinetree Road.
