Special to the Journal-Spectator

Registration for the Wharton County Library Children’s and Adult’s Summer Reading Programs, “Build a Better World!” will begin in all branches on Thursday, June 1, 2017.  

Children can earn prizes while they read and after completion of the required reading, they will be eligible for a grand prize. Weekly Library programs and performances are scheduled throughout June and July.  Please consult your local branch (Wharton, El Campo, East Bernard, and Louise) for details on programs, crafts and movie times.  

Adults can also participate in “Build a Better World!” this summer by reading (or listening to) 5 books.  Upon completion, they will receive a Reading Certificate and be entered in drawings for prizes.  Prizes have been made possible by generous donations of local businesses, civic organizations, and individuals.  

The Wharton County Library is excited about the summer program and encourages everyone to take part, no matter how old you are!  All summer programs will end July 31, 2017. Come join the fun! The Library staff will be more than happy to answer any questions, please call your local branch for more details.  More information will also be available on the Library’s website:
