Calling all BABIES, KIDS, TEENS and Parents too!
It’s time to push yourselves farther, harder, higher than you’ve done before! It’s time you get smarter, better, stronger! It’s time you … LEVEL UP. It’s time to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge and READ!!!!!
The Grand Rapids Public Library challenges all kids under the age of 18 to read throughout the Summer. The fact is that kids can lose one to three months of reading achievement over the summer if they don’t read. On the flip side of that, it’s like what Dr. Seuss and other have said:
“The more you read, the more you know,
The more you know, the smarter you grow,
The smarter you grow, the stronger your voice,
When speaking your mind or making your choice.”
So, reading during the Summer is IMPORTANT but it’s also FUN! When you join the Summer Reading Challenge this year, you open yourself to a Summer of adventure with Bugs, Beetles & Bookworms, Dinosaur Encounters, a RockGarden Party, Dr. Dirt, Kevin Kammeraad, Pippin Puppets, Flash Mobs, Animals under the Surface, the Ocean Underworld, Steampunk, Henna Runes and much more. You are only limited by your imagination.
Once you join the Grand Rapids Public Library’s Summer Reading Challenge and start reading, you will have even more fun as you reach different levels of the challenge and unlock the the prizes, some of them “secret prizes,” that awaits you.
So, let the games begin and I challenge you starting May 28th to take the Summer Reading Challenge by clicking on “SIGN ME UP!”
