BUILD A BETTER WORLD! Summer Reading 2017
for beginning readers up to those going into sixth grade
We know reading interests and abilities vary so we have kids set their own reading goals: either number of books or number of pages they want to read by August 12. (Don’t worry if your young reader isn’t sure how to set their goal. We have a chart to help figure it out.)
Kids receive a folder to keep track of their reading, a bookmark, temporary tattoo, and State Fair voucher when they sign up. Because kids set their own goals, it is best if they are present when signing up.
You can register any time the library is open!
Those who meet their reading goal and bring their folders to the library by August 12 earn a Congratulations packet that includes a small toys, and set of tickets and coupons to area attractions (Milwaukee Public Museum, Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, Milwaukee County Zoo, Milwaukee County outdoor pools, Cool Waters/Schultz Aquatic Center, Pettit Ice Center, Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Wave, Festival City Symphony, Milwaukee Ballet, First Stage Theater, Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, Big Backyard, Boswell Books, Pizza Hut, Cousins Subs, Culvers.)
They are also entered in a drawing for special prizes including Fun Bags of super trinkets, and Grand Prizes including a magna-tile building set..
Congratulations Packets are available after July 5. Winners of special prizes are announced the week of August 14.
