If you've talked to us about the Summer Reading Program, you've seen we are doing things a bit differently this year for the "Reading Challenge." Thanks to Newton Public Library for sharing their process.

Each week, June through July, we'll have a new "Reading Ticket" available for pick up. The tickets are filled with lots of options to keep you and the kids reading (as well as collecting great surprises).

Oh dear, one of our librarians has a problem! We have ALLLLLLL these fantastic new games at the library, and she has no one to play with. So we were thinking about starting Grown-Up Game Nights.
(Think about it....whole evenings that don't involve "Candy Land" or "Sorry" or breaking up fights about whose turn it was.)
But we'd like a little input from the community to get us started. Most importantly, if this is something that would interest you, what evening would work best? Obviously, we won't be able to catch everyone, but scheduling them when nobody can show up isn't a great plan, either. Also, would you prefer that it be just for adults, or is there interest in letting teens join us?

Adopt-A-Project

Children’s replacement books: We love it when children love books. But some of our children’s books are looking really well-loved!  We need funds to ensure we have good quality versions of classic children’s books on our shelves. Some examples include Berenstain Bears books, Dr. Seuss books, Bill Peet books, the Hardy Boys series, and Curious George books. Books range in price from about $10 to $30 each. Adopt a book (or two or three) today!

Summer Reading Program Book Give-Away: As part of our Summer Reading Program, we would like all of our participants to receive a book as part of the incentive to read all summer long. We had almost 200 kids be a part of SRP last year, and at approximately $4 a book, that will add up fast! Would you consider giving 10 kids a book at a cost of $40? (This would be a great way to advertise your business, too, as we’ll label the book “graciously donated by…”.)
