Spring Reading Contest!

March 31st - May 3rd

Sign up and grab your reading log at the library beginning the last week in March for our Spring Reading Contest. Record the number of minutes you read (or are read to) each day and let us know how much you are reading by coming in and adding a link to our paper chain for each hour you read.

Turn in your reading log on May 3rd to be considered for prize baskets given to the top readers in each category; Read-to-Me, Early Readers, and Independent Readers. Be sure you record and total all of your minutes, identify the category reader you are, and complete the paper chain!
