How many of you are doing a summer reading program? Ours will begin this Sunday, May 22 and continue through July 24. For updates, visit our blog at www.libraryfbc.blogspot.com

Our 2011 summer reading club is "Dive into Books" and we have the library decorated with fish, seaweed and shells. Our windows look like aquarium tanks!
We received donated ice cream certificates from our local Baskin Robbins and Chick-fil-A for prizes when kids/teens reach their goal of reading library books (4 books for oldest teens to 12 books for youngest kids). Each child/teen who reaches their goal (fills up their reading log) gets their name on a tropical fish cut-out (from a teaching supply store, about 1 1/2" wide) and those go up on a water background in our Worship Center lobby for all to see.
We kicked it off June 11 and the last day for checkouts is August 7th. This is our fourth summer reading club, and each year we have also had a weekly Raffle Prize - for every library book read, the child/teen fills out a raffle ticket and puts it in our specially decorated raffle jar. Those prizes are nicer and are also donated by businesses. This year the prizes are water toys and assorted Christian books or music CDs.
Around 150 kids/teens are participating this year. It brings a lot of families into the library who don't necessarily use it during the school year, and every body has a lot of fun with it.
I'll post some photos soon!
