This Summer is Going to POP!
Sign up for Fizz, Boom, Read online here!
Miss Mary and Miss Carly are following this year’s scientific theme by offering a “high tech” program that allows children to track their reading online, write reviews and view other users’ reading lists in order to grab book recommendations.
Families are still able to check-in weekly for their small prize/stickers and our weekly gift certificate prize drawings will be pulled at random through the summer reading website every Friday afternoon. Winners will be notified by email or phone, but you must come to the Youth Services Department in order to redeem your prize! The grand prize drawing will be held on Friday, August 16th and it is a Kindle Fire – so you can’t win if you don’t read!
We are also really excited to announce that we have an extra summer reading incentive this year, provided by local artist Joe Kobylanski and Branford Public Schools. The school district wanted to leave their students with a summer reading challenge as well as a physical representation of the number books read throughout the community. In order to encompass both Mr. Joe created a magnificent marble maze that children will be able to race when they check in each week with their summer reading log. For each book they have read they will receive one marble to place on any of the wooden maze tracks! Our hope is that we will be able to fill the maze’s plastics columns by summers end BUT we will need YOUR help in order to do so.
To watch our marble maze grow simply Like us on facebook; each week we will post a picture of the maze to see how much our community has read, SO get ready to watch our marble columns grow!
