Pierre the Sneaky Parrot
June 12, 2013
Have your heard of Pierre the Parrot? I know some of the kids have heard about him while we were out promoting Summer Reading Program at the schools. But in case you haven't, please meet Pierre the Parrot. He will be hiding in various areas in our Library during SRP. So, when you come in to sign your children up for SRP, have them walk around the branch with you and find where he may be nesting for the day. When you have located him, come to the desk and tell our friendly librarians where he is, and you'll get to pick one prize out of our treasure chest. Also, you may only earn one prize for finding Pierre during SRP. You may look for him every time but only redeem a prize once. Also, it's for kiddos 10 and under. Happy Searching!
Also, when you come in to earn your first reading prize, you'll get to walk on the gangway of our pirate ship. Ahoy, mateys! Take note of our pirates and treasure map on our bulletin board, where our SRP readers' names will be displayed on a treasure chest, mermaid, or starfish cut-out. Don't worry -- we won't make you walk the plank, but we will encourage you to read while you're out of school for the summer. Read any books you have checked out from any of our MCPL branches or from home and earn a free book! See you in the Library!
