Taco Bell Summer Reading Program at Liverpool Public Library - Earn Free Tacos & Twists!



My kids and I stopped into the Liverpool Public Library today to sign up for the Summer Reading Program! It only took a few minutes to sign up and we walked away excited to further our reading skills over the summer.

Besides the library offering their own prizes for reading this summer, the Liverpool library is lucky to be one of the few libraries around offering a reading program from Taco Bell as well!

You can pick up the form to participate at the Liverpool Public Library either in the Children's Room or included in your summer reading bag. Kids need to read 10 Books this summer, write them down on the form and then bring the form back to the library. The website says that the librarian will give a certificate good for a FREE Seasoned Beef Taco and Cinnamon Twists to all kids that read 10 Books!

My kiddos love Taco Bell so this will be a no brainer for us!

Note that this is NOT a country wide promotion. The website states that 15 or fewer libraries participate each year and Liverpool Public Library happens to be one of them this year.
