The Greenville Public Library has two special summer reading programs, one for children and another for adults.
Library Director Mike Westbrooks told WGEL the kids’ “Ice Cream For Books Program” has been going on for several years and grows each year. In that program, young readers earn an ice cream treat from the Greenville Dairy Queen in exchange for reading books.

Those in the children’s program get to sign their name on a paper ice cream scoop, for each book they read, and attach it to one of the ice cream cone posters.
The adult reading program was started a couple of years ago because the boys and girls had one.
To be in the adult program, the reader must have a library card.
