This summer’s UP With Reading theme is “Take a Magic Carpet Ride.” Each registered participant will be given a magic carpet to decorate and display in the library. Each participant will also be given a button to wear when they come to the library. Whenever a participant reads for five hours or reads five books they will be given a sticker to decorate their button.
Prizes will be awarded for special achievements:
A yard sign for each child who reads 10 hours
A book for each child who reads 25 hours
The HPISD school whose students collectively read the most hours will be awarded the Readers Cup trophy. Hyer Elementary School is the current champion.
