Reading Challenge Cards

 

Do you enjoy a challenge? Could you become a reading superhero?

The Library is launching a new program to build some reading excitement, taking kids through the rest of the school year and the beginning of Summer Reading Club.

Each month we'll have a new series of reading challenges on a card you can pick up from the Library or print off at home. Kids can read any kind of book, at any reading level (read-alouds from other levels count too), that connects with a challenge. When their card is complete, they can collect a sticker and enter a monthly draw for prizes. Readers who do all the monthly challenges get a button or magnet, and are eligible for the grand prize: a Sirius Science & Nature gift card!
