Thanks to everyone who participated in Youth Services’s 2013 summer reading program and weekly contests! This year’s theme was “CATCH THE READING WAVE.”
Please take a look at the four happy winners of our weekly contests! They each won a neat prize pack for guessing which book the Perrot bears were reading in a photo posted in the children’s room.
Over 300 kids signed up for our summer reading program and read 1,078 books in total. This year, Perrot made a donation based on each book read by our summer readers to Oceana, the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Perrot’s summer readers read enough books for us to meet our goal of adopting a clownfish!
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 72 volunteers, who together worked over 500 volunteer hours. Thanks, guys!
And remember, we still have another month of summer left, so please KEEP READING!
