Reading program trades burgers for books
The Douglas County Public Library has joined with In-N-Out Burger for the Food for Thought reading program, which runs March 8 to April 19. Children ages 4 to 12 are eligible to receive a free hamburger or cheeseburger simply by reading books. Both branches of the library are participating in the program.
Children must fill out a file card at the library to enroll in the program. Readers will earn an achievement award redeemable for an In-N-Out hamburger for every five books read at their reading level. Each participating child may earn up to three award certificates. Children too young to read on their own may have a parent read to them.
The Lake Tahoe Branch of the Douglas County Public Library is located at 233 Warrior Way in Zephyr Cove. For more information, call the library at (775) 588-6411.
