During this holiday season, children ages 10 and younger will have a reading partner at the Destin Library thanks to our local Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.

Bubba Gumpís, 14059 Emerald Coast Parkway in Destin, has supplied the Destin Library with Reading Calendars for the month of December that can be redeemed locally for a free kidís meal.

The offer is valid for one Free Kidís meal for a child 10 and under with the purchase of two adult entrees. Limit one Free Kidís meal per reading rewards calendar per visit. Maximum is two Free Kidís meals per table. Offer expires Dec. 31. Reading calendars are available at the library during regular hours.

ďChildren participating in the program must read 20 minutes a day and have Mom or Dad mark off each day,Ē said Will Rogers, Reference and Youth Services librarian at the Destin Library. ďAt the end of the month, take the completed calendar in to Bubba Gumpís for a FREE Kidís Meal with the purchase of two adult entrees. Support for reading programs for children is a welcomed gift from our local businesses.Ē

Area businesses interested in supporting programming for children and young adults at the Destin Library are encouraged to call Rogers at 837-8572.
