A public library program encourages reading by offering a private screening of "Sinbad" to one lucky child who signs up.

Young readers get
inspiration from ‘Sinbad’

Swashbuckling adventure can be found at the library this summer as the Hawaii State Public Library System launches a reading program to tie in with the summer film release of "Sinbad."

"Sinbad -- Find Adventure at Your Library" encourages children ages 2 to 16 to visit local libraries to enroll for the program, which runs through July 2.

Every child who signs up will be entered to win a grand prize of a private screening of DreamWorks Pictures' "Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas" for the winner and 50 friends.

Following the movie, Baskin-Robbins will host an ice cream party for the group.

Other prizes include certificates from Hilo Hattie and Baskin-Robbins.

The animated film features the voices of Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michelle Pfeiffer and Joseph Fiennes.

Pitt is the voice of Sinbad, the most daring rogue ever to sail the seven seas. Zeta-Jones voices the beautiful Marina, who joins Sinbad on his adventure. Together, they must battle Eris (Michelle Pfeiffer), the powerful goddess of Chaos, to save the fabled "Book of Peace" and the life of Sinbad's best friend -- and most dangerous rival -- Proteus (Fiennes).

"Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas" opens nationwide July 2.
