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 31st. Our Summer Reading theme this year is READING IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!
To sign up for our summer reading club, simply go to 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 American Museum of Natural History, to help fund free museum and planetarium visits for NYC school 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 which author wrote the book our bears are reading! Each week, we will post a photo at the desk of our bears reading a book. Pick the name of the author of the book and fill out a guess slip. We will have a random drawing from all our correct guess slips each week. We have 4 great tote bags full of prizes to give away, each which contains books as well as outer-space themed prizes!
