Young readers taking part in the Ascension Parish Library’s summer reading programs can win prizes, have fun learning new crafts and improve reading skills, a library spokesman said.

Youths who log at least 200 minutes of reading time are eligible to win T-shirts, a news release from the library said.

Each week throughout the program, a T-shirt is awarded to Read-to-Me and Youth Club members at the library branches across the parish.
