Salt Lake County Fair "Read and Ride"

The Salt Lake County Fair (August 5-8) is participating in a special reading program this summer to encourage kids to read by providing free carnival rides!

Kids ages 5-14 can read three books, fill out the Official Book Report Form (available at the Library), then take the completed form to the Fair Office at the Fairgrounds between 11:00am and 9:00pm to receive tickets for 3 free carnival rides, plus a special bookmark.

Come into the Library and talk to the Librarians at the Kid's Desk for more information.
