Movies under the stars • In a Utah tradition, cities along the Wasatch Front offer free movies in parks at dusk. Salt Lake City is showing movies through mid-July. Go to slcgov.com/node/462 for the lineup. Millcreek has a similar program that runs through mid-August. Go to canyonrimnews.org for more information.
Check with your city’s website, because many municipalities — including Magna, South Jordan, Sandy and Draper — are offering free outdoor movies sometime this summer.
Learn about letterboxing• This activity is like geocaching, but you don’t need a GPS unit — just your imagination. There are letter boxes hidden throughout Utah that you and your family can find using clues. Go to letterboxing.org for information.
Get rewarded for reading • Children can earn prizes such as a subscription to Highlights magazine from Sylvan Learning’s Book Adventure program. Go to Bookadventure.com for more information. Free books also are available through Barnes & Noble’s summer reading program. Get program details and print a reading log at bit.ly/MVRz3L.
Salt Lake County has a summer reading program with prizes, entertainment and a host of events for all age groups. Go to Saltlakesummerreading.com for more information. Other municipal summer reading programs can be found in Salt Lake City (slcpl.lib.ut.us/news/index/35); Provo (provolibrary.com/kids-srp) and Tooele (tooelecity.org/tcl/library.html).
Children who read 10 books also can get a free ticket to the Utah State Fair in September and a voucher for one free carnival ride and a small lemonade. Details are at utahstatefair.com/readandwin.
