PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library continues its summer reading program with a special “Pajama Family Night” this Wednesday, July 31 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Library, 700 E. Palmdale Blvd.

“Help us celebrate Beatrix Potter’s birthday,” said Palmdale Library Director Thomas Vose. “Come in your pajamas with your favorite pillow, blankets or stuffed animals.  Together, we’ll listen to a story, then read one with your family.”

The summer reading program has been a huge success, with more than 850 kids signed up. The program, which is free for kids up to 12 years old, is sponsored by the Friends of the Palmdale City Library, and runs through Aug. 10.

“The Summer Reading program also includes reading logs for children,” said Librarian Debbie Melin. “If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late.  Stop by the reference desk next time you are in the Library and pick up a log for your child. To encourage reading over the summer, kids will earn prizes for every five books they read. In addition, the Library will host a party at the end of the summer for those who participated.”

Other programs in the summer reading program include  “A Musical Feast with Craig Newton—End of Summer Party” on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 1 pm.

The Library will also host Preschool Story times on Tuesdays at 10 a.m., Wednesdays at 11 a.m., and Bilingual Story times on Fridays at 10 a.m., now through Aug. 10.

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
