BERNARDS TWP., NJ - It's not too late - children of all ages and reading abilities still have a chance to join the Bernards Township Library's Summer Reading Club through Saturday, Aug. 5.

The library's Summer Reading Club invites participants to read anything they and their parents want. The reading can be done anywhere - at the library, at home, or even on vacation.

Each child will receive a reading log. The log is used to keep track of the child's reading and let them earn rewards through the program.
