1/12/2011 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- Are you looking for a way to expand your child's mind, vocabulary and reading skills?

McBride Library and the youth center have joined forces to present "One Page at a Time," a free motivational reading program for dependents of active-duty members, retirees, Defense Department civilians and contractors.

The program continues until March 14 and is open to children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Readers must turn in logs by this date to be considered for prizes.

The program allows participants to create their own reading lists from thousands of titles, log their literary successes and earn points for each book read.

In order to participate in the program, all children must register and pick up their reading logs and suggested reading lists from the library's children's room or download the forms from www.afyouthprograms.com.

Books can be checked out from McBride Library; any city, county or school library, or can be personally owned.

For more information on the program, call McBride Library, 377-2181, or the youth center, 377-4116.
