Every year we have a marvelous program where you can get prizes for reading. It’s called the Summer Reading Club! You might think this club is just for kids. You would be mistaken. This club is for anyone who likes to read. Actually, it’s for anyone even if you don’t like to read. All we require is for you to read 20 minutes a day for 10 days. After that, you come in and get a prize. That’s it! We don’t even care what you read as long as you are reading. Read a blog, read a website, read a novel, read a short story. We won’t even make you do a book report, unless you want to.
Here’s the breakdown. There are 3 logs total. You receive a prize at the end of completing each log.
When you turn in the first log, you get a book. It’s a book you pick, so of course, you will love it.
When you turn in the second log, there are a variety of prizes, all age appropriate:
-Ages birth-3: a Sippy cup
-Ages 4-10: a Glow-in-the-dark Frisbee
-Ages 11-17: Awesome ear buds in a case
-Ages 18+: a 16 oz. drinking glass
When you turn in the third log, the kids and teens get an invitation to our super exclusive water park party at the end of the summer. The adults get an entry into a drawing for an iPad mini.
I know what you are thinking, “You mean, I can get awesome stuff for reading this summer?” Yes, yes you can.
We also have an amazing photo booth set up at each of the libraries. There are hats, props, and all sorts of fun things to play with. Take a photo and tag it #dentonpubliclibrary or #fizzboomread. Send it to our Instagram account, our Facebook page, or our Twitter feed. We love photos!
