“This year’s theme is ‘Read to the Rhythm’ and we’ll be having a lot of fun over the summer to encourage kids to keep up their reading skills,” stated library director Thomas Vose. “We’ll kick things off with a party on Monday, June 8, at 1 p.m., with face painting, balloon storytelling and more!”
Sign up will begin at 10 a.m. at the Reference Desk in the Library, and the program starts at 1 p.m. The Summer Reading Program is free and open to all kids up to age 12.
In addition, the Palmdale City Library will hold a Teen Summer Reading Program and a new Adult Summer Reading program, in which teens and adults can earn tickets for a chance to win raffle prizes, such as a tablet computer, just by reading.
The reading programs will be held through Aug. 8 and are sponsored by the Friends of the Palmdale City Library.

The workshop will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, and Wednesday, June 10, at the Library, 700 E. Palmdale Blvd.
Because space is limited, this event is first come, first serve.
“There are a lot of young gamers out there, and this might be the start of a great career someday,” stated Library Director Thomas Vose.
This program is hosted by Skills USA and Palmdale High School’s FAST Academy.
