Enjoy family entertainment as part of the San Bernardino County Library’s Summer Reading Program – San Bernardino Sun
The San Bernardino County Library’s summer reading program, “Excavate Something Big”. featuring crafts, a dinosaur-themed experience, performers, and rewards for meeting reading goals, will open on Monday, June 7.
This year again, the library offers the program online with programs for all ages. People can pick up program kits at any branch library and participate in projects with library staff through Facebook. Program kits are provided while supplies last. Some branches also organize virtual storytelling hours.
People can also sign up for the “read for rewards” portion of the program through Beanstack at sbclib.beanstack.org. Participants log in, record the amount they read each week, and earn digital badges. Library patrons can claim their earned rewards and collect fun buttons every week at branch libraries.
This summer, the San Bernardino County Library also partnered with Glen Helen Regional Park to bring summer reading artists to the park, with a variety of family shows starting at 4 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from June 7. through July 28, according to a press release. There is no performance on July 5.
Participants in the Summer Reading Program will receive a lanyard and tag upon registration and will receive $ 2 off the $ 8 vehicle admission price at the Glen Helen Regional Park gatehouse when they show the lanyard .
People are encouraged to arrive early for pre-show activities, including a scavenger hunt and music. There will also be free Kona Ice for the first 100 people to visit the County Library kiosk starting at 3 p.m. each performance day.
