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!) from June 22nd through July 27th.
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 the 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 will win a prize! Also, this year, for each book you read, Perrot will make a donation to Heifer International.
Parents, you can also take home a reading record for your littlest ones. We have special sheets for books 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! Our summer reading theme is WILD ABOUT READING. Each week in July, you will have to find a small stuffed giraffe that will be HIDING somewhere in the children’s room. When you know where the giraffe is, come to the desk to fill out a guess slip. (Try not to yell it out so you don’t give it away!) We will have a random drawing from all our correct guess slips each week in July. We have 4 great prize bags to give away, which will contain books as well as jungle-themed prizes!
Be sure to join us at Perrot this summer and show us you’re WILD ABOUT READING!
