The following is a news release from Calcasieu Parish Public Library:

The Calcasieu Parish Public Library will kick off the 2014 Summer Reading program with a very special "Kick-Off Celebration" on May 30 from 4-7 p.m. at the Prien Lake Park Harbor's Edge Pavilion.

There will be entertainment for the whole family as Matthew Noel and the Magic Yo-Yo perform feats of tricks, juggling, and comedy.

Adults, teens, and children will have the opportunity to register for the Summer Reading Program, as well as enjoy a variety of games and crafts including bookmark creations, face painting, cookie decorating and an exciting variety of outdoor activities.

The Friends of the Library, Calcasieu will also be selling 2014 SRP t-shirts and book bags.

For those who have never tried out the Summer Reading Program, completing the program is easy!

You can register for the program either at the Kick Off Celebration or at your favorite Calcasieu Parish Public Library branch.

Children can complete the program by reading ten books, or having ten books read to them, and logging them online or in a book log which can be picked up at their local library.

Teens and adults must read and review five books, and have them logged online or on a review form.

All reading logs/review forms are due on or before July 11.

When completed, patrons will receive a "Library Star Lives Here" yard sign along with other great prizes and have their names entered into the system wide drawing for a grand prize!

    For the rest of today, we will see mostly sunny skies with no chance for any rain. You will need a jacket as you head out the door because temperatures will still not warm up very much. Highs this afternoon are only going to be in the mid 60s. After sunset, we will quickly fall into the 50s, eventually back into the 40s again. By tonight, we will have clear skies with rain chances down to zero. Temperatures will cool down to the low to mid 40s tonight.
