This year, we are adding a preschool class; any child who will enter kindergarten in the fall is eligible. Other eligible grades include kindergarten through 5th. If you have just finished fifth grade, you are still able to enter the contest. All books read for the contest must come from the Pea Ridge Library. Contest rules and ending party information are available at the library.
Please come and join us; we always have a lot of fun.
The party to celebrate the contest entrants will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 26. There will be pizza and watermelon. All entrants will receive a treat bag and winners receive prizes.
