ALSO HAPPENING
 

*Reading Log
Pick up a Reading Log or download and print it at home, color in bubbles for each day you have read. It counts the same if you are reading or someone reads to you. You can read LIBRARY books, eBooks, magazines, audiobooks or books/eBooks/magazines/audiobooks from anywhere else. I would say a reading day is a day you have read 20 minutes or more. You decide, based on your child's ability to sit still and reading skill, if this is a good benchmark at your house. LAST DAY TO EARN REWARDS IS August 1.  This is the last day to turn in papers for rewards unless you make arrangements with Miss Kim for an extension. Extensions are granted if you will be out of town that day. Record keeping stops on July 26th. Questions can be emailed to carnegie@seolibraries.org or call 330-385-2048 x101

Put your name, and phone number and age group (child, teen, or adult) on the back of your check out slip and turn it in for a chance to win a bag of candy.  There will be a candy drawing every Wednesday at the 2pm program for all child slips turned in by noon that day. 

*COUPON GAME
There is a different question to be answered in the Children's Room each week. If you participate, whether your answer is right or wrong, you will be entered into a drawing for candy. Winners are drawn at the Wednesday programs.
