The summer reading game theme for 2014, Paws to Read, will celebrate our animal friends. Animals have been memorable companions for numerous folks. Try the following: John Katz: A Good Dog: The Story of Orson Who Changed My Life (636.7374 Katz), James Bowen: A Street Cat Named Bob: and how he changed my life (B Bown, J) or Denis O’Conner: Paw Prints in the Moonlight (636.80092 O’CONNER)
And there’s so much more – mysteries, fiction, advice, animal crafts, and even laughter, all with an animal theme. Please browse the book display on the first floor for suggestions.
The summer reading game is for all ages. The game will run June 9 through August 9, using a bingo game format. Adults can pick up their game boards at the Information Desk or at the Children’s Department. You’ll win prizes by reading or doing the optional activities. Each spin of the spinner wheel represents 30 minutes of reading or an optional activity. However, the best prize is the one you give yourself, taking the time for enjoyable reading.
