Cooke County Library’s summer reading programs are set to begin next week.

Signups will take place Saturday, June 1, through Saturday, June 15, for “A Universe of Stories,” the theme for this year’s programs for all ages. Children and adults are welcome to participate and registration is free, according to a press release from the library.

There are three different programs — one each for children, teens and adults. The children’s program is designed for ages 2-11 and the teen program is for ages 12-17. Each one has different reading requirements and prizes.

The Friends of the Cooke County Library are providing three Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8s to be given away at the end of the reading programs. One adult, one teen and one child will be able to win. Every time a patron uses a Cooke County library card during the six-week Summer Reading program, their card number will go into the appropriate age raffle. The drawings for the Kindle Fire winners will take place July 18. 

Summer reading programs run June 1 through July 16. For more detailed information regarding prizes and reading requirements, visit the Kids tab on the Cooke County Library website at www.cookecountylibrary.org or call the library at 940-668-5530.

The library is at 200 S. Weaver St. in Gainesville.
