Summer Reading

July 5, 2020

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, repeating until August 30, 2020

We’re excited to participate with other libraries around the state in offering, Page Turner Adventures.  This virtual program is 10 weeks long and will offer a program M-F to access from our library’s Facebook page.  Stay tuned for details.  The start date is June 22nd.
As in the past we welcome all ages to participate in our Annual Summer Reading Challenge.  Each child going into 5th grade and under who earns 60 reading points will be awarded a reading medal.  Yes, I added 10 points, but I also added an extra month to read and record points. Points are earned by reading books.  Please note that I encourage readers to read to younger children who cannot ‘read’ yet, but love to listen to stories being read.  Points count for both the reader and the listener.
5 points for all children’s non-fiction books, 5 points for intermediate and juvenile fiction books – “Chapter Books”, 1 point each for all children’s picture books and early/easy reader books.  Young Adult/YA books and both adult fiction and non-fiction titles are worth 10 points.  Points may be recorded from books read from June 1st – August 31st.  You may borrow library books through our curbside pickup service (at least for now), or read books from home, or online.  Use your library card to access ebooks and audio books right here from our home page, hover & click on the “Digital Library” button.
We will have three age brackets, 5th Grade & under, 6th-12th Grades, and adults.  All who earn 60 points will be entered in a drawing for prizes. Each time you earn 60 reading points your name will be entered.  You may jot down your titles and points on a piece of paper & place in the book drop for me, don’t forget your name(s) & grade(s).  Or you may email  – [email protected]  Or you may call – 715-274-8331.
Additional opportunities to earn a ticket will be shared here, on our Facebook page, Legion Memorial Library and on our website, www.legionmemoriallibrary.org.  For June Dairy Month, earn a ticket by coloring or drawing a picture of a cow or tractor.  One entry per person.  Leave it in the Book Drop or email me a copy.  I’ll post in the library windows.
