Thanks to everyone who participated in Youth Services’s 2014 summer reading program and weekly contests! This year’s theme was “GET A CLUE- READ!”
368 kids signed up for our summer reading program this year and read 1,369 books in total- both new records at Perrot! Hooray! This year, Perrot made a donation based on each book read to Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a non-profit organization that purchases protective vests for dogs working in law enforcement across the U.S.
If you were one of our very special signer-uppers, you can still keep track of the books you read, even though our “official” program has ended! You can either take your reading record home with you, or leave it here in the library. We will also continue to give out prizes for books read (while supplies last, so HURRY!).
We’d also like to give a special mention our teen volunteers, who helped record books for our reading program participants. This year we had 70 volunteers, who worked a combined total of 556 volunteer hours at Perrot. Thanks, guys!
And, please take a look at the happy winners of our weekly contests! They each won a cool prize pack for guessing which of our picture book characters was hiding incognito.
And remember, we still have another few weeks of summer left, so please KEEP READING!
