Summer is here! And that means it's time to sign up for Perrot's summer reading club! You can participate (and win prizes for reading!) from June 25th through August 2nd.
To sign up for our summer reading club, simply go to our volunteer table by the computers in Youth Services. Our friendly teen volunteers will sign you up, tell you the rules and start a reading record for you. You'll also get to put your name up on the bulletin board! We'll keep your reading record here in the library. When you've read a book, just tell a volunteer next time you're in the library and they'll write it in your reading record. After you read your first, third, and fifth books, you get a prize! Also, this year, for each book you read, Perrot will make a donation to Oceana, a group that works to protect our oceans.
Parents, you can also take home a reading record for your littlest ones. We have special sheets for books read aloud with your child. Children get a sticker for each book they've read with a grown-up.
We're also having a contest this summer! Our summer reading theme is CATCH THE READING WAVE. Each week in July, we will display a picture of Perrot's bears reading a book, and you will have to guess which book it us. Once you figure it out, fill out a guess slip. We will have a random drawing from all our correct guess slips each week. We have 4 great tote bags full of prizes to give away, each which contains books as well as ocean-themed prizes!
Be sure to join us at Perrot this summer and CATCH THE READING WAVE!
