County Library hosts Cover to Cover Club with In-N-Out Burger

InNoutPoster2016Join the San Bernardino County Library as we partner with In-N-Out Burger again this year to promote reading among children this spring. The Cover to Cover program kicks off on Saturday, March 5 and will run through Saturday, April 16. This program will encourage students to read in all communities across the County.

To participate in this program, visit any of the 32 San Bernardino County Branch Libraries to sign up. Participants must be between the ages of 4 and 12 and a parent or guardian will need to sign to acknowledge reading accomplishments. For every five books read an achievement award and voucher for a free hamburger or cheeseburger will be issued. Each child may earn a total of three awards and vouchers for the duration of the program.

In support of the Countywide Vision’s Vision2Read literacy campaign, this program will  help to improve literacy among children ages 4 to12, with the help of incentives, by inspiring an excitement to read, providing achievement goals and encouraging a reading routine.
