Summer reading at library
Register with a parent/adult sponsor during library business hours for the Youngsville Library's fifth annual Summer "Super Reader" Program, open to all students from kindergarten (completed) through 12th grade (completed).
Participants may read independently (not at the library) and at their own pace. The rules state that readers may read their own books or ones that are borrowed from the library.
Fund-raiser for Boy Scouts
Boy Scout Troop 22 from Irvine will be raising funds for its next adventure by hosting an All You Can Eat Buffet at the Warren Pizza Hut on Thursday, June 10, from 5 to 8 p.m. The boys will help seat diners and greet customers.

Ready for reading
Registration starts Monday for the Youngsville Library’s Summer Super Reader program. In the photo above is Ashley Cox, who will be participating in the program.
Read as much as you want or as little as you want, but the more you read, the more chances you have to win prizes, fair passes, gift-cards, and more.
The program runs from Monday, June 14, through Friday, July 23. The sooner you register and receive your reading logs, the better your chances of completing all six reading log levels: S-U-P-E-R and Reader. Those who complete the highest level Reader are guaranteed to receive a T-shirt and 10 extra "raffle chance tickets" for chances to win "Super Reader" prizes.
For more information, call 563-7670, Monday and Tuesday from noon until 7:30 p.m., Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday from noon until 4 p.m.

Youngsville Library is still welcoming any donations that community members would like to make toward the reading incentive prizes for this year's Summer Super Readers program for local students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Just a $5 or $10 donation to this educationally important program will help the library provide gift-card raffle prizes, grab-bag items, or will be used towards the purchase of Warren County Fair Tickets (for raffle prizes).
If you'd prefer to donate actual items for incentive prizes (such as jump ropes, water toys, candy, bouncing balls, water pistols, or similar items), drop them off by 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 15.
Saint Luke's church has pledged to co-sponsor the cost of T-shirts for participants who reach "Top Reader" status on their reading logs. A donation has also been received from Irvine Presbyterian Church's Women's Association. St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church has also made a pledge to support the reading program.
