Summer Read-a-thon Week 9 Theme

August 5, 2013

Just a reminder- there are only 2 weeks left – the Read-a-thon will end next week on Friday the 16th of August. If you signed up before the read-a-thon began, and you want to be entered into the drawing to win a prize, you need to leave a comment with your or your child’s name, their age and the number of books read BEFORE Friday the 16th. The drawing will take place on that Friday!

Also, I want to remind everyone that the week of the 11th – 16th Build Your Library will be having a sale on all full year programs! You do NOT want to miss it!

This week’s theme proves that academic subjects can be fun and fascinating too!
