Mayor Daniel Alemán invites all Mesquite kids ages 5-12 to join the Mesquite Mayor 1,000-Page Reading Challenge this summer.
The challenge, which coincides with the Mesquite Public Library System’s Summer Reading Club, will run from June 1 to July 31. Kids who read 1,000 pages or more will be invited to a pizza party on Aug. 5 with the Mayor to receive a certificate and prizes.
Kids can read the pages independently or have the pages read to them. To be a part of the Mesquite Mayor 1,000-Page Reading Challenge, register for the Summer Reading Club in person at the Main Library or North Branch or at mesquitelibrary.readsquared.com.
Once registered, readers can log their pages read using READsquared, which also offers an app to track pages.
Kick Off parties launching the Summer Reading Club will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 1, at the Main Library (300 W. Grubb St.) and at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 3 at the North Branch (2600 Oates Dr.). To learn more, visit www.cityofmesquite.com/library.
