And they’re off! Readers across the state have leapt into Summer Reading with local library events based on the 2016 slogan “On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!” ! Here are a few highlights from libraries across the state.
Teens at Lincoln Library get ready for some strenuous reading by making tie-dyed t-shirts at their Summer Reading launch party. Olympic fencer Iris Zimmerman came to the library and gave the kids a talk and a hands-on fencing lesson. Next week they will be making some super fun bouncy balls!
At New York Public Library, teens and tweens between the ages of 10 and 18 got in the reading game at the Aguilar Branch of NYPL. Teens and tweens receive a scratch off ticket for participating in various reading related activities throughout the summer. They can receive a ticket for checking out a book, attending a program, volunteering, or writing a teen pick review. This ticket gives the reader a chance to win any one of a number of fun prizes- from advanced reader books, to t-shirts, or even the grand prize- two tickets to a Yankee’s game!
