Children "follow the reading trail" The Pahrump Community Library began its annual sum- mer reading program for children on Monday, June 16. This year, the program is entitled, "Westward Ho!! Follow the Reading Trail." Pahrump chil- l dren, 3-15 years of age, will come to the library once a week for eight weeks to participate in the free program where they will hear western pioneer themed stories appropriate for their respective ages. Participants also must read for 12 hours during the course of the eight weeks and write a book report (younger children may draw a picture). Children who complete program re- quirements are entered in a drawing for a grand prize to be announced later. All participants receive a free book and book bag. The program is intended to encourage young children and teens to read in a non-academic setting and to introduce the library as a resource for pleasure reading. For the fourth consecutive year, Preferred Equities Corpo- ,, ration (PEC) will sponsor the reading program. In addition to PEC's annual donation of books, arts and crafts and re- corded books, this year thecom- pany has committed to improv- ing the quality of the program by purchasing a mici-ophone, speakers and an amplifier for the library. , Beginning on June 16, 3 to 4-year-olds meet from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. On June 18, 7 to 8-year-olds will meet from 11 a.m. to noon, and 9 to 1 l-year-olds will meet from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Twelve to 15-year-olds will meet on June 19 from 1 p.m. to 2p.m. For more information, contact the library at 702-727- 5930.
