The Indian Trails Public Library District will kick off its annual summer reading program Saturday with a musical performance and other activities.

Jim Gill will perform music for fans of all ages. Cookie decorating is planned and a photo booth will be available.

Also, people should bring copies of their favorite recipes, which will be shared digitally. Recipes should include the ingredients, instructions and a description of a memory or tradition associated with the dish.

Visitors also can sign up for summer reading logs. Track your reading and activities between June 19 and July 31 to win free books and other prizes.

The reading challenge is free and open to everyone. No library card is required to participate.
