NORFOLK, Neb. -- Summer reading programs are about to being. 

In Norfolk, registration for the annual program begins Monday. 

Library Youth Services supervisor Karen Drebo said this summer's effort is themed "Oceans of Possibilities" and will feature a number of events beyond having residents keep track of how many books they've read. 

"We take great pride, and this is a fun, free program with all kinds of events that families can do together," said Drebo. "And you know there aren't many fun, free things that you can do during June and July as a family."

Youth Services Library assistant Jessie Roberts said readers can also go digital to keep track of their progress and upcoming event. 

"We also have a handy-dandy QR code that people can scan with their phones," said Roberts. "We have multiple ones located around the building - upfront, our children's area, our young adult area - so you can go ahead and do that as well."

Norfolk's summer reading program is open to both children and adults, and it culminates on August 5th. 

Drevo said the goal is for infants to preschoolers to read 150 books this summer, while kindergartners and adults have a goal of 25 hours of reading.
