Catch the Reading Bug Catch the Reading Bug is the theme for the 2008 Summer Reading Programs at King County Library System. All 43 KCLS community libraries, including the Redmond Library, will host bug-themed programs, activities, books and adventures in three age-based programs:
  Pre-schoolers can participate with their parents in a special pre-reading activity game.
  Kids have a full array of programs and events to accompany their reading, and prizes for reaching their reading goal.
  For teens, KCLS has a Summer version of the popular Read Three, Get one Free reading program with books for prizes.
