NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Volunteers were gathering at New York City libraries Saturday to enroll people of all ages in the 2013 Summer Reading Program and register them for library cards.
The volunteers from New York Cares were to enroll children, teens and adults in the annual reading program, and also led literacy and craft projects at 36 library branches across the city, as part of Love a Library Day Saturday.
Libraries across the city were also holding a variety of programs and special events with prizes. Children and teens can also log onto the Summer Reading Web site to review reading lists, rate books and music, and keep a log of books they have read this summer.
This is the second Love a Library Day, with a goal of boosting the number of New Yorkers with library cards and raising awareness of the programs libraries provide in their communities.
