Intended to encourage children of all ages to read over the summer, this manual presents library-based programs, crafts, displays, and events with an Olympic theme. Based on responses to earlier Arizona Reading Programs, this manual includes more preschool materials, age-range suggestions on crafts and programs, and more glossy clip art than earlier manuals. The chapters of the manual are: Introductory Materials; Goals, Objectives and Evaluation; Getting Started; Common Program Structures; Planning Timeline; Publicity and Promotion; Awards and Incentives; Parents/Family Involvement; Programs for Preschoolers; Programs for School Age Children; Programs for Young Adults; Special Needs; and Resources. A master copy of a reading log and evaluation instruments are included. Several chapters, as indicated in this manual, will not be reprinted annually in the future and should be kept for reference and program planning.(AEF)
