This summer Tualatin Public Library and Tigard Public Library are partnering with their local swimming pools! You may want to file this summer reading idea and think about doing something similar in your community next summer because the 2016 summer reading theme is fitness/wellness and the slogan for children will be 'On Your Mark, Get Set... READ!' and for teens 'Get in the Game-READ!' The 2016 children's summer reading poster and banner may include images of swimming (other sports and wellness activities may be featured in other art and products).

Here is what Tualatin and Tigard libraries are doing:
The two libraries are partnering with the Tigard-Tualatin Aquatic District (TTAD). TTAD provided the libraries with pool passes to distribute to children and teens who participate in the summer reading program.

The way Tigard is distributing the pool passes is: Independent Readers and Teens all have an opportunity to enter weekly bonus prize drawings for summer reading. In order to enter the drawings, they have to tell a librarian about something they've read or listened to. Just for entering the bonus prize drawing, youth get a free coupon to swim at TTAD.

The way Tualatin is distributing the pool passes is: When children and teens sign-up for the summer reading program they get a free coupon to swim for Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation pool. When children and teens finish the summer reading program, they each get a free coupon to swim at TTAD.
