The summer reading program at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Library is still accepting registration for all ages. The program began May 28 and participation is free.

Launched years ago as an incentive to keep everyone reading throughout the summer and when school is out of session, The program rewards readers for reaching certain goals.

Readers are divided into three groups: Read to Me (birth to 7 years), I Can Read (8 to 15 years) and Young Adult/Adult Reader (16 years and up). Each group has three levels of goals to reach, based on the amount of reading they accomplish and log in an online account.

This year’s theme is “Paws to Read,” and weekly activities match the theme. A dog demonstration will take place on July 28 to teach about human-animal interaction. Additional games, puzzles and crafts will be offered in July. The program ends on July 12, and a final party with prizes, food and entertainment for the participants will be held July 19.

The program is provided courtesy of the Department of Defense (DoD) Library system every year. For more information, visit the library or call 449-8299.
