2015 Summer Reading Game
June 1 – August 15
THE LIBRARY'S summer reading games are fun with a purpose. They help kids avoid losing ground between school years by keeping reading skills strong, and prepare preschoolers and babies for reading by enriching their vocabulary.
For every 10 minutes you read or listen to books, cross off or color in one box. Complete 10 boxes, then take your log to the library for a prize! Kids earn a library tote bag after 100 minutes of reading. Keep reading. Show your log to the librarians each time you go to the library.
Set your own reading goals. You don’t have to fill all 100 spaces to finish. If you want to read more, get another log! To get a prize book, turn in this log by AUGUST 15.
Funding provided by the Library Friends.
2015 Spring Reading Game
January 2 – May 15
Read books, listen to a story, or come to a library event. Keep track of the books you read on your Book Bingo log.
After you complete 4 in a row, visit the Children’s Desk or the Douglass Branch Library, bring your reading log and get a special stamp. When you complete all the squares, bring your completed reading log to the library, and we’ll enter you in our monthly prize drawing.
