Summer Reading Program 2015

slogan200pxThis year we are kicking off our summer reading program with two special events for the kids at KES!


Earn a ticket for every 15 minutes read alone or with an adult. For every 3 hours read you will earn a golden ticket towards one of the larger prizes. And every time you get a gold ticket, you also get to choose a prize from our Hero Gift Bag!  The more you read the more chances you have to win!  Registration begins Friday, June 19th.
