Puget Sound Summer Freebies Top Ten (# 10 & 9)

I love summertime--can't get enough of it--there is just so much to do, especially here in the Pacific Northwest. For that reason I have put together 4 posts full of the top 10 things I am doing and you should do this summer. Of course, to earn the spots at the top of my list they must be cheap, easy and fun.

10. Go to the Regal Cinemas Summer FREE film festival
The Lakewood 15 Regal Cinemas has just unveiled it's new list of FREE film festival movies for the summer. Movies are shown every Tuesday and Wednesday and start at 10 am.

9. Visit the Pierce County Library
During the summer Dave pays the kids for the books they read, anywhere from a nickel to a dollar depending on the book. Sometimes more if it was a really big one. The kids LOVE it. They also love racking up all those hours of reading for the library's summer reading program where they can earn Subway Sandwiches, Ice skating passes, T-shirts, even entered into drawings for video recorders! The program is excellent. Our favorite library to visit is the Lakewood library. It is the main library and has a large kids section and room for parents to sit down and read while the kids look for books, play with puzzles or participate in the many programs, like puppet plays and reading groups, the library offers. For more information on the programs and prizes check out their website www.piercecountylibrary.org/kids-teens/summer-reading/.
