TUBA CITY, Ariz. - This past summer, the Tuba City Public Library (TCPL) put on its first summer reading program to help promote family reading and reduce summer break reading loss.

Every Tuesday library staff put on a weekly story time and encouraged children ages 2 to 12 years old to read and participate in reading activities at the library and in their own homes.

Parents committed to reading regularly with their children during the six-week program. The library had more than 40 participants in this summer's Dig into Reading activities. TCPL's summer reading program was a success, and library staff is looking forward to continuing the program next summer.

The Dig into Reading theme explored gardening, large construction diggers, burrowing animals and digging up dinosaurs. During each story time, library staff read books aloud and discussed and explored topics through hands on activities. Children took home additional books.

The program concluded with a reading celebration at Louise Yellowman County Park in Tuba City.

Tuba City Trading Post, Valley Ridge Mortuary, Chevron, Cal's Auto Collision, Pizza Edge, Bashas', Cellular One, Chick-fil-A, Peter Piper Pizza and Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library all donated to the program. The reading program used the donations as incentives for reading and participating in weekly story times. The donations also helped make the reading celebration possible and rewarded all participants who completed the summer reading program. One of the library's main goals for this program was to help the children obtain reading material of their own to keep in their own home. The sponsors helped make that possible.

More information about Tuba City Public Library programs is available at the library or from Trish Polacca at (928) 283-5856.
