    The Dodge City Public Library has summer reading activities planned for readers of all ages, from pre-school to adult, beginning the first week of June.
    "It is a fact that children who read during the summer will have a better success rate when school begins back in the fall," said the library's director, Cathy Reeves. "We have something for everyone this summer and we hope everyone will make time to participate."
    Summer reading programs at the library are divided into three categories: ages 0-12, teens, and adults.
    For the youngest readers, ages 0-12, the library has scheduled programs at 2 p.m. every Wednesday afternoon, beginning June 2 and continuing through July. The theme is "Make a Splash @ Your Library," and things will kick off with Pirate Day, followed with programs on weather, bottle rockets, water, crafts and a carnival with water olympics. Special visitors will make appearances, including Froggy and the Bubble Man and prizes will be awarded for reading books.
