Summer is here– and that means it’s time to sign up for Perrot’s summer reading club! You can participate (and win prizes for reading!) starting today, June 22nd, through July 29th. Our Summer Reading theme this year is ON YOUR MARK, GET SET… READ!
To sign up for our summer reading club, simply visit our volunteer table by the computers in Youth Services. Our friendly teen volunteers will sign you up, tell you the rules and start a reading record for you. You’ll also get to put your name up on our bulletin board! We’ll keep your reading record here in the library. When you’ve read a book, tell a volunteer next time you’re in the library and they’ll write it in your reading record. After you read your first, third, and fifth books, you get a prize! Also, this year, for each book you read, Perrot will make a donation to the Greenwich Alliance for Education, to help get books in the hands of needy kids.
Parents, you can take home a reading record for children who are not yet reading independently. We have special sheets to record books you have read aloud with your child. Children get a sticker for each book they’ve read with a grown-up.
We’re also having a contest this summer. During the last 4 weeks in July, you will have to guess how many candies are in the jar! Each week, we will have a new jar of candy at the desk. Guess how many candies are in the jar, and fill out a guess slip. Whoever’s guess is closest wins the whole jar! (If more than one person guesses correctly, we will draw randomly from among all correct answers.)
