Time to Read Tuesday! Summer Reading Program Info
Good Morning! I have, indeed had my coffee so the world is now safe.
I have spent the morning searching for summer reading programs. Amanda especially loves the goals and prizes when it comes to reading. (Katie has unfortunately aged out of most of the programs.)
We love getting goodies and free books and such, so here are a few I found and thought I would share:
1) Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County - of course this only applies to those of us who live here, but most local library systems have some sort of summer reading incentive program.

These programs go from infant to adult. Prizes include being able to read down your over due fines, and earning book bucks for free paperbacks.
2) Borders - Read 10 books and earn a free book!
Borders Double Dog Dare Reading Program
3) Barnes & Noble - Read 8 books and receive a free book from a select group. (You can complete this one up to 2 times)

5) Half Price Books - log your minutes between 6/1 & 7/31. Bring your log into the store to receive $5 in Back to School Bucks. Top reader in each age group receives $20. (NOTE: There is no HPB in the Charlotte area, but check to see if your will be traveling to a place where they have a store!)
