There's still time to catch the bug that children and teens all over the metro have already been after since June 1. This summer's "Catch the Reading Bug" program for children and "Metamorphosis @ Your Library" program for teens continues through July 31, motivating young readers to stay sharp by reading over their summer vacations.

The Metropolitan Library System participates in this statewide season-long program, sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. The theme changes each year, keeping the program fresh and ready to entertain readers who are new to the program.

PRIZES
Both programs offer prizes to participants for every eight books they read. With prizes like Oklahoma RedHawks tickets and El Chico and Whataburger coupons, not to mention chances to win a Nintendo DS or a Laser Quest pass, it's no surprise that children are reaping the benefits of reading when school's out.

"Summer reading programs make educational reading activities fun and appealing to young people. When reading what they enjoy, they learn to love reading and become better readers," said Susan McVey, director of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, in a press release. "Statistics prove when children read throughout the summer, they become better readers and better learners."

To get involved, visit your nearest local library to fill out a registration card and receive your reading log, bookmark, book bag and other cool sign-up prizes, including a pass to Science Museum Oklahoma and the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.
