“Build a Better World” Summer Reading Club
Registration begins June 2 at 6:30 pm for our Summer Reading Club with our kick-off party with magician Al Mazing! Children will receive a sign-up prize! Registration is also ongoing throughout the summer.
NEW this summer: Children will earn tokens for time spent reading which can be entered into a charitable organization box of their choosing. Children will experience “giving back” just by reading while avoiding summer learning loss and increasing their reading and comprehension skills.
Summer Reading Kickoff Party! - Friday, June 2 @ 6:30 pm
Don’t miss magician Al Mazing and his family-friendly “Build a Better World” interactive magic show! All children can register for the 2017 summer reading program, receive their packets and a small sign-up prize! Registration required.
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
The concept is simple but the rewards are priceless! Read any book to your infant, toddler or preschooler -- the goal is to have read 1,000 books before they enter the door of kindergarten!
Just reading 1 book a day is:
- 365 books in a year
- 730 in two years
- 1,095 in three years!
You have plenty of time, so take advantage of this wonderful early literacy reading program!
Collections on Display
Kids love to collect all sorts of things -- rocks, coins, stamps, stuffed animals, Matchbox cars, postcards, LEGOS, comic books, dolls, baseball cards -- the sky's the limit! If you have a collection, we would love to display it in our (secure) hallway display case along with your name and what makes your collection unique to you! Please phone Dolores at the library, 412-885-2255, or email email@example.com.
