Thanks to everyone who participated in Youth Services’s 2011 summer reading program and weekly contests! This year’s theme was “BE A SUPER STAR- READ!”
Please take a look at the four happy winners of our weekly contests! They each won a neat prize pack for finding a little star that was hiding in a different spot in the children’s room each week in July.
Over 300 kids signed up for our summer reading program and read over 900 books in total! This year, Perrot made a donation based on each book read by our summer readers to the Greenwich Alliance for Education. The Alliance helps get books to kids in Greenwich who can’t afford them. So thanks, readers– each book you read helped support a great cause!
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 62 volunteers, who together worked nearly 500 volunteer hours. Thanks, guys!
And remember, we still have another month of summer left, so please KEEP READING!
