Do you ever set reading goals? I sure do. I have a lot of reading goals this year, actually. I don’t know where they all came from, but suddenly, I find myself in the midst of several book lists that I simply have to finish by the end of the year. Not that anything will happen if I don’t finish them by the end of the year, but it’s the principle of the thin. Right. Here are the reading goals I’m working on this year.
Sure, it's already May and we're ready to start our Summer Reading Program for children and teens (check back here soon for more information!), but don't forget about our reading challenge for adults, 6 in 12. We will have drawings for several eReaders and other assorted prizes, and you have until the end of the year to participate!
Yes, kids and teens are happily hauling home piles and piles of books for the MCPL Summer Reading Program. They’ll read hundreds of minutes and earn really cool prizes. But don’t forget, there’s a reading program for adults, too. It’s called the 6 in 12 Challenge.
MCPL has started our annual Summer Reading Program and Teen Summer Reading Program that will run through August 3. As a parent, we bring our children to programs at the Library to enrich their summer and allow them to explore different activities.
Obviously if you love reading, you love the library... at least we like to think so, and we thank you for that in advance. What about all of the other wonderful, FREE enticements? While we have the bestsellers and fun for the kids, the library might just be more than you are picturing.
Our Summer Reading Program ended July 31st, and it’s been such a treat to be part of the cheering section for the young readers who have participated. The SRP is just one of MCPL’s efforts to facilitate literacy in our community. We can all see the value of encouraging our youth to read, but studies indicate that it may be even more important for their parents to read regularly.
Have you been living up to your New Year's Resolution to read more? Does 6 in 12 sound familiar? This year the Library has challenged any adult above the age of 18 to read any 6 books. Are you still reading? I'll admit, I'm still reading, but I haven't been taking the time to keep track of my titles and submit them to 6in12.org. Even though I know each entry gets me closer to a chance at one of the 5 eReaders that will be given away at the end of the year. Sigh. Sometimes life gets away from you.
