The Summer Reading Program officially began on June 11 with a Kickoff Party at the Lewis Library and Technology Center in Fontana.

A large crowd filled the library during the event, which had a theme of "Tales of Enchantment."

Youngsters were excited about taking photos with Belle, Snow White, and Princess Jasmine, and they were also enthralled by a performance called "It's Not Magic, it's Science" by Full Spectrum Entertainment in the Steelworkers' Auditorium.

The annual Summer Reading Program, which offers many prizes and is free and open to all ages, will run through Aug. 3.

Liz Smith, the services and programs lead for San Bernardino County, said that this year the county's library system is taking the summer program online.

"People can now create an account, log the amount of reading each week and earn digital badges through the San Bernardino County Library program site, Don’t forget to visit the library weekly to pick up your earned rewards and enjoy all of the fun activities the library has planned throughout the summer," Smith said.

The Lewis Library is located at 8437 Sierra Avenue. For more information, call (909) 574-4500.
