Summer Reading: Letter to Parents

Yesterday, this e-mail was sent out to parents regarding some changes in the Summer Reading program. Please read, and pass it on!

Parents and Kids,

Thank you so much for joining us this Summer in our Voyage to Book Island.  The response has been unprecedented!!

Due to our overwhelming success we have had to limit prizes priced at $500 and up to one per child. If you reach $500 bucks the exchange rate will change to $10 bucks per 100 pages.  We want everyone to get a chance at these great prizes!

We'd like the parents to join their children in this adventure.  Please sign your child's reading log each time they total their pages/titles. Please note books on log must have been read this summer.  This is an excellent opportunity to talk about what they've read and what they will purchase with their bucks.

The librarians will also be asking the kids about some of the books on their list in an effort to find the real treasures this summer.

We hope to see you all throughout the summer and at our end of summer party on July 30th.  Children should continue to read in order to save up their bucks as we will have a special purchasing opportunity at this event.

A small reminder to YS and SAS parents, if you didn't leave a library card at SAS or with your YS child, they  will not be able to check out books when they visit with their programs.

We'd like to thank everyone once again for their enthusiasm, and their understanding as we attempt to make the Summer Reading Program the best it can be!
