LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - With school out for summer, many parents are looking for ways to make sure their kids keep up their reading habits.
To help with that, the La Crosse Public Library is offering a free program this summer to encourage reading.
This year's theme is about science and technology, and the librarians are expecting a rush on comic books and graphic novels.
Anyone under 18 is invited to participate in the program. There are also pre-reading activities for younger kids, and opportunities to mentor for older ones.
"The more kids read, the more they discover they can find their own facts, their own information and enjoy themselves, so they really get into the whole reading fun trip," said Marge Loch-Wouters, Youth Services Coordinator for the La Crosse Public Library.
The library is expecting at least 1200 kids to get involved in the program. There's also a chance to earn prizes.
