We have a new program this summer at Perrot– a summer reading club for children entering grades 1 and up! You can participate in our summer reading club (and win prizes for reading!) from from June 30th through July 30th.
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!
Parents, you can also take home a reading record for your little one. We have special sheets for books you 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! Each week in July, one of our littlest bears will be HIDING somewhere in the children’s room. You’ll be able to tell him apart because he will be eating an ice cream cone! When you know where the bear 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 ice cream-themed prizes!
