PELHAM, N.Y. - Summer is a time of beaches, barbecues and - if the Pelham Library has its way - books.

The library's Dig Into Reading program is for children in pre-school through eighth grade. The program motivates children to "dig" into books even when they are not in school.

“If kids don’t do any reading over the summer, they drop precipitously in their reading skills,” said children’s services librarian Lilly Hecker.

The Summer Reading Program offers prizes throughout to children who reading during the summer. Pre-schoolers win a book prize every time they listen to six stories; school-age children earn a book prize every time they read three age-appropriate books. There are also additional prizes in the Library’s treasure chest, and the Summer Reading Game culminates with an end-of-summer ice cream party on Aug. 27.

The program is free and children have until July 31 to register.
