I know you’re excited about summer, who can blame you? But you know who is even MORE excited about summer? ME!
I’ve got a bunch of excellent things planned in June and July, for instance:
See that last program on the brochure? It’s an overnight lock-in. That’s right, 12 hours IN THE LIBRARY. No one allowed in or out but Young Adults. BUT, you have to attend 3 programs and read 21 hours in the Summer Reading Club. “But Sti, how do you join the Reading Club?”, you ask. Or you would if this were an infomercial…This year we’re going digital, so starting June 1 (yes, a Sunday and yes before school is technically out) you can go to the library’s website or the library (free) app and sign up to log your hours spent reading this summer!
Here’s what the website will look like when you get there:
Create an account and log your hours! The website will keep track of them and tell you when you’ve earned a prize. Just as in years past there are 5 stages to the club:
- Stage 1=3 hours
- Stage 2=6 hours (9 hours total)
- Stage 3=12 hours (21 hours total)
- Stage 4=24 hours (45 hours total)
- Stage 5=48 hours (93 hours total)
Now before you start complaining that 93 hours is so much time
….93 hours over an 83 day long summer (June 1-August 22) means you only have to read 53.4 minutes per day. TOTALLY doable. Especially if you’re listening to audiobooks or completely that dreaded but mandatory and not always awful require summer reading for school.
Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now. If you have questions, leave me a comment or come in and see me! I’ll be the one rocking the rainbow hair all summer!
