The Book Bash is Coming! The Book Bash is Coming!
If your child has not yet registered for the Summer Reading Program, there is still time to do so. If your child has already registered, remember that the program ends on August 11th so make sure your little one meets his or her reading goal before then. Once your child has read enough books to fulfill his or her goal, bring the game sheet to the Youth Room to get registered for the grand prize drawing and get a ticket for the Book Bash! Only those with a ticket will be able to enter and choose a book from the thousands of titles filling the Story Room from August 13 – 25. So, keep working hard and don’t forget to DREAM BIG – READ!
Summer is winding down but there is still time for travel and fun. Marian has some on-the-road suggestions she thinks you will enjoy.
Do you have a summer vacation coming up? If so, audio books are a great resource to keep children entertained. We have several popular titles available on CD for long car trips. You can also download something from our eLibrary at www.ebtpl.org and transfer it to an iPod or other device. Kids love listening to new titles and old favorites and audio books count toward summer reading goals. Even if you are not heading out of town, audio books are a fun way to use technology to get children excited about reading.
