Martin County, FL – Beginning Saturday, June 6 young readers will discover their inner hero as MCLS presents the “Every Hero Has a Story” Summer Reading Program. Children ages birth through fifth grade are eligible to receive a reading log to track their reading and earn free books all summer long! Those who log 30 days of reading will receive a special gift and an invitation to the finale party at the end of summer. Thanks to a special partnership with Children’s Services Council and YMCA of the Treasure Coast, this year’s reading logs also double as a free ticket for an open skate session or rock wall climbing pass at YMCA Sportsworld. A list of Summer Reading Kick Off events are listed below:
