LOWELL | Celebrate the “dog days of summer” at the Lowell Public Library and its Shelby and Schneider branches by joining the summer reading club and Wrap Your Paws Around A Good Book. Children, preschool  through grade 5, can register at any time now through July 27, the last day to enter books for summer reading credit. More than 450 children have already registered.

Children will be entered into a weekly drawing for fun prizes each time they log in their chapters or number of books read. They will also receive a ticket to the treasure chest each time they check out five or more books.

Activities and crafts for children are held twice weekly and among others, include making Styrofoam airplanes, corn dog muffins and root beer floats, CD Dogs, and two separate visits with the Lake County Solid Waste Management District Enviromobile. All programs require registration.

Have You Read a Good Movie Lately? is the theme for young adults, grades 6 to 12. Book discussions, movies based on books, babysitting classes and CPR, cooking, bean bag tournaments and crafts are just some of the activities offered. Young Adults will fill out an entry for each book they read. There will be weekly winners chosen. Each of those slips will also be eligible to win a Kindle Fire HD.

Adults are encouraged to fill out a slip for each book they read and enter to win a $100 Strack and Van Til gift card.

Summer reading culminates with Dave DiNaso’s Traveling World of Reptiles Show at 11 a.m. Aug. 7, featuring iguanas, giant frogs, turtles, and snakes. All ages are welcome to attend.
