The Lompoc Public Library invites the community to Find Your Voice this summer by participating in the annual Summer Reading Challenge.

Participants can earn prizes for participation all summer long, including a free book at sign-up.

Those without internet connection may call the Lompoc Library or come the Lompoc or Village libraries to register and log their participation.

All participants will have the opportunity to earn weekly prizes throughout the challenge. The Lompoc Library will conduct a Grand Prize Drawing on Aug. 1 with prizes for all ages.

Adults will have a chance to win an iPad; teens an Owl Crate box; children a Kindle Fire 7; and early learners, Magna-Tiles. All prizes will be distributed while supplies last.

Also back this year is Lunch at the Library, with meals provided for children and teens at the library through a partnership with Lompoc Unified School District. Meals are available on the youth patio, 1-2 p.m. Monday-Friday, June 20 through July 14. Along with healthy meals, free activities will be provided.

Sarah Bleyl, Lompoc Library director, said the annual Summer Reading Program is a great way to have fun, learn new things, and grow through the summer.

“Every year, we look forward to the Summer Reading Program and having fun with the community,” she said. “Join us this year to Find Your Voice and help us reach our goal of reading for 100,000 minutes.

“The community is invited to visit our library web page to see our online schedule of activities, or stop by one of the libraries for a print copy,” Bleyl said.

The Summer Reading Challenge also offers a full schedule of summer activities for all ages. Events include family story times, craft programs, and game nights. The Village Library will host weekly activities.

Summer Reading Challenge registration continues through July 31.
