Summer Reading Club Begins At 5he/ton Library Man's conquest of space is the theme of this summer's Reading Club at Shett0n Public Library. All boys and girls from first grade through Junior High are invited tc join the club, for a summer oI reading for fun. Reading one book after June is the admission to the Club: th member then receives a member's card with a map of space. With each book read, a new sticker is added to thc card. These stickers picture the stages in man's ex- ploration of space. The Club clos- es on Sept 7. Twelve books read entitle the member to a ribbon at the end of the shmmer, Eighteen books are needed to complete the chart. Books read for credit in the club can be on any subject, but must be titles owned by the Li- brary, although a copy owned at home could be used. However. most members will probably want to read at tea.st one book on sci- ence, to learn more about the Club's theme. There are many in- teresting science books for chil- dren in the Library. A member, may join at any time during the summer, but joining early will give a head start t- wards winning a ribbon. Joining the club and. getting a library card, are yours for the asking; there is no cost involved. The names of those winning I awards will be published later m the summer, Ribbons will be pre- sented at'schooI next fall.
