BOOKS & PRIZES - SUMMER READING AT THE LIBRARY

 The library summer reading program is somewhat new and somewhat old. We just want to encourage reading!

As in past years, for every 10 books you read or have read to you  we will give you a prize. You can keep a log if you want to or not.

We are also supporting the PQ Summer Reading Program this year. We will have copies of their lists and a selection of books from their lists as well as a cool bag with goodies in which to take home the books. http://www.northsalemschools.org/schoolslibraries/pq_summer_reading

We are also supporting the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge. 
Studies show the value of reading to your child before Kindergarten starts. If you read just one book a night you will have read 365 books in a year, 730 in two years, and 1095 in three years. When we say read, we also mean read to. So if mom or dad read five books a night to you, they count. And, if they read the same books again the next night, that counts as five more. You don’t have to keep logs, copy out titles, go online or register. You just have to have fun with books. For every 10 books you read or have read to you, you will get a stamp on the bulletin board. For 100 books you get a sticker, a certificate and a prize.
