All children who plan to attend these programs must be registered
at the library prior to attending a program. Parents or legal guardians must register each child. Reading rewards/prizes will be given to the first, second and third place readers in each grade. All reading rewards/prizes are sponsored by the Louisville Banker’s Association and the Louisville High School Class of 1959. The grand prize for children’s and teen’s reading programs will be a $50 gift certificate card donated by Wal-Mart, to be given away on Awards Day.

Only parents or legal guardians may register their children for the summer library program. Once children are registered, babysitters, grandparents or other caregivers can bring the child to the programs. Children up through age nine must have a parent or authorized caregiver over age 12 in the library, or on library premises, at all times during the programs.
