Library jump-starts summer reading program

The Rancho Santa Fe Library jump-started its popular summer reading program with a performance by USA Jump Stars on May 21.

Children got a workout jumping rope with Melinda Everett, the talented founder of the jump rope program. Her jump rope squad will make an appearance on the new FOX television show “Glee” this summer.

The jump rope demonstration was just the beginning of an activity-packed summer at the library, all wrapped up with the summer reading program that officially begins June 4.

Last year, 380 students participated, reading a whopping 225,226 minutes, and Debbie Wilson, youth services manager, is hoping children will read even more this year.

Young readers from toddlers to high school students can participate in the program, racking up minutes through July 24. Prizes are awarded to the best readers.

Readers must register at the library, where logs will be kept. Junior Guilder volunteers will help readers fill out their logs and suggest books to read.

Activities this year include Movie Mondays, Teen Talent Tuesdays, Whimsical Wednesdays, Craft Thursdays and Fabulous Fridays featuring candle making, photography, T-shirt making, theater performances and games such as “Guitar Hero” and “Jeopardy.”

The program ends with an ice cream social for summer readers on July 24.

Visit the library today to register and get a calendar of events.
