On Your Mark, Get Set, Read – at the Sargent Library!
Today is the official beginning of the summer reading program for kids. For only one hour of reading (or being read to), the prize is an ice cream cone or a hot dog. Another hour of reading time will earn them a prize from our treasure chest. A free pizza and movie rental is the reward for 5 hours of reading. We will have prizes for up to 10 hours of reading. Later in the summer, there will be free baseball tickets to see the Lincoln Salt Dogs or Omaha Storm Chasers.
Reading time logs can be picked up at the library or downloaded here. It is so important to encourage your children to read over the summer months. The books can be from any source, and don’t forget, that the Sargent Library offers free eBooks and audio books for you to download to your tablet, computer, or phone. Let’s surprise the teachers this fall when they discover that their students have improved their reading skills.
Older kids can enter a prize drawing for a Kindle. Every book they read earns them another entry.
