2000 Hours Means: Bunnies!!

Congratulations Watertown readers, you've been reading so much this summer that we've surpassed our third goal!  You've read over 2000 hours - 2,136 to be exact - and you know what that means.  We get to donate rabbits to Heifer International!

In addition to being adorable and sweet, rabbits can be incredibly helpful to families around the world.  It's possible to collect rabbit fur, kind of like collecting sheep fur, and weave it together to make fabric.  Bunny poo is also wonderful fertilizer for crops on a farm.  Plus, rabbits reproduce really quickly, so families who receive rabbits can share their rabbits' offspring with friends, family, and neighbors.  This is a gift that can help an entire community!

Amazing work you guys, and keep reading!  There's only about two weeks left of Summer Reading, and we've still got about 1000 hours to go to be able to donate a goat.  So read, and come in to log those hours.

Haven't signed up yet?  Don't worry, there's still plenty of time to make your reading count.  Just come on in during our open hours and sign up for your own reading log.

Plus, don't forget, on Wednesday, August 20, we'll have our great big Wrap-Up Party at 2:15pm!  We'll kick-off the celebration with an amazing performance by Boston Hoop Troop, a talented hula hoop group.  Then we'll find out if we read enough to donate a goat, and we'll celebrate with some delicious cake.  See you there!
