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 23rd, through August 1st.Our Summer Reading theme this year is GET A CLUE… READ!
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, just 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 Vested Interest in K-9s, an organization group that purchases protective vests for police dogs.
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, one of our stuffed animal book characters (Olivia, Arthur, Angelina, etc.) will be hiding IN DISGUISE! You will have to find the hidden character in the library and write down their name on 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 mystery and detective-themed prizes!
Be sure to join us at Perrot this summer!
