Summer Reading's Going Strong!

Have you signed up yet for Summer Reading?

We're about two weeks into Summer Reading, and we've got tons of readers and tons of fun programs!

So far, Watertown kids have already read over 325 hours! We're over halfway to our first goal of 500 hours, when we'll donate a flock of geese to Heifer International!

Each paper gear on our giant robot represents one child who signed up for Summer Reading.  Our Reading Robot is almost full! 

When kids sign up for Summer Reading, they set a personal reading goal for the whole summer.  They write their name and their goal on a gear, which goes on our Reading Robot for the whole world to see.  Look at these amazing, ambitious goals! 

Each gear represents one hour one hour that a child's spent reading.  We've got a good start, but these walls will get jam-packed as we start meeting our reading goals.

Want more information about Summer Reading?  Check out our Summer Reading Website, where you'll find all sorts of info, as well as reading lists for kids going into preschool through grade 5.

Keep reading everybody, and keep coming in to log your hours!  If you haven't signed up yet, there's still time.  Just stop in anytime we're open and start your very own reading log.  And of course, check out all of the fun programs we've got going on.  We've got something nearly every day, for various age groups, so check out our calendar to find out more!
