Summer Reading 2020: June 20 - August 20
Wilson Community Library is dedicated to motivating its community to read all year long. We are committed to practicing social distancing and all COVID-19 related precautions to keep patrons safe at all times. Considering in person gatherings will not be possible this summer, we are focusing on all that the library can deliver to our young patrons this summer. We want to help your children love to learn! Looking at this new normal, check out some of the offerings we have in efforts to make learning fun this summer:
Summer Reading Challenge for Ages 3-18: Participants will complete reading logs for their chance to win prizes in our Summer Reading Raffle. We will give away six $25 gift cards to either Imagine That Olcott or the Transit Drive-In.
Summer Reading Challenge for Adults: Save Your Receipts! Keep your checkout receipts and enter them as raffle tickets. The more you read, the more chances you have to win a $50 gift card to a local restaurant of your choosing!
Extra Ticket Options!
You must read at least 25 books to enter the raffle, but can receive additional raffle tickets if you complete the following:
Online Programming: Watch and learn! Follow the daily adventures of storyologist, Page Turner. You must join our Facebook group, Page Turner Adventures, in order to view this content. Register here. Thanks to the Friends of Wilson Library for sponsoring this program for our community kids!
Let Your Imagination Out of the Bag! Engage with stories with our book themed crafts. Follow us on Facebook to find out when a new bag is ready for checkout.
Get Caught Reading Family Challenge: Reading role models help encourage kids not just to read, but to have fun while reading. Parents, caregivers, and friends can help kids keep the habit of reading up throughout the summer with this motivating challenge. It’s a kids versus reading role models competition! Give a penny every time you catch your child reading throughout our nine week summer reading program. If they find you reading, they can give you a penny. Pennies from all participants will be collected at the library. The money will be donated to the Wilson Food Pantry, but you will receive a raffle ticket for every five pennies collected. Who will win on August 20, community kids or reading role models?
