Charlotte-Mecklenburg library launches summer reading clubs

Kids can win prizes, reduce overdue-book fines or give back to the community through the Charlotte-Mecklenburg library's summer reading clubs.

The clubs start Monday, June 14, and run through Aug. 9. Sign up and pick up your reading record at any location, except the Main Library and Checkit Outlet.

For each hour of reading, kids can earn "book bucks." Book bucks can be redeemed for prizes once you reach 10 and 20 hours, or you can use them to erase your fines. You can also donate them to provide books to local centers in need.

Go to the library's summer reading Web site for more information.
