Oregon summer reading program Adyson Weaver Larson, 4, runs through a cloud of bubbles during the kick-off party in 2017.

Summer is soon to be in session, and that means Oregon area kids will likely look for ways to combat the “summer slide.”

That’s why the Oregon Public Library will kick off its summer reading program starting Monday, June 10. While the kick-off events will last until Saturday, June 15, the program will go until Saturday, Aug. 17. This year’s theme is a “Universe of Stories.”

During the week, participants will have the chance to win $10 worth of Chamber Bucks by registering for a reading program or checking out library materials.

Chamber Bucks can be redeemed at any local Oregon businesses.

Registration for the summer reading program begins Monday, June 10. Age groups include Read-to-Me for ages 0-3, Children for ages 4-11, Teen for ages 12-18 and Adult.

For more information, call 835-3656.
