Children’s Summer Reading 2016
An exciting summer of reading is in store for children at the Goodnow Library! All kids from birth through rising 5th graders are invited to participate in the library’s summer reading program. (Middle and High School Students are invited to participate in Teen Summer Reading). One of the most effective ways to improve reading skills is to read regularly and often, and research has shown the benefits of greater academic achievement!
Sign up in-person at Goodnow Library
starting Monday, June 20th!
This summer the Goodnow Library will have fun programs and activities to get children excited about reading. Starting on Monday, June 20th, stop by the children’s room to sign up and receive your summer reading materials: reading log, reading challenge, bookmark, sticker and temporary tattoo!
We’re introducing a new way to track reading this year: necklaces and keychains decorated with different beads based on how many minutes a child reads. Beads get cooler the more you read – earn sparkly, sport, or even glow-in-the-dark beads! Children who finish an entire reading log will not only get to keep their necklace or keychain, but they will also get to pick a prize from our prize box. In addition, each child who participates in this year’s program will be invited to our Reading Champions Celebration at the Sudbury Fieldhouse!
