Join the Davenport Public Library for a fun-filled action-packed carnival, kicking off the 2013 Summer Reading Program!  On Saturday, June 1, the Eastern Avenue Branch (6000 Eastern Avenue) will offer an afternoon of fun and adventure between noon and 4:00 p.m.!  The first stop will be to sign up for the Summer Reading Program, with this year’s “Dig Into Reading” theme.  We’ll have information about the program, and the grand prizes will be on display.  This year’s grand prizes include gift baskets and two 16” bicycles courtesy of Jerry & Sparky’s Cycling & Fitness.  After signing up, be sure to stay around and enjoy games, a dunk tank, and get your picture taken with Libby the Library Dog in all her glory as a 25’ balloon!

The Davenport Public Library would like to thank the following organizations for their donations to the Davenport Public Library Summer Reading Program:  FRIENDS of the Davenport Public Library, Quad City Times, Jerry & Sparky’s Cycling & Fitness, HyVee, Monkey Joes, and Isabel Bloom.

The Summer Reading Program is a free fun-filled event for all ages, and we welcome patrons from all over to sign up and participate throughout the summer.  This year’s Summer Reading Program concludes on Thursday, August 1 with the 26th Annual Bix Porch Party!  For more information or a complete list of Summer Reading Program events, call (563) 326-7832 or visit www.davenportlibrary.com.
