Summer reading programs
The library is continuing the “Read to Feed” program this summer carried out by Sunnyside and Burnside schools. Through reading, money is raised and donated to Heifer International, a nonprofit organization. This money is used to buy farm animals for families in need around the world. More information can be found at www.readtofeed.org.
Beatrice’s Goat, a children’s picture book about a real family who received a goat from Heifer International, may be checked out from the library.
For every 15 minutes or more of reading or being read to for five days, complete the form found in your library bag and at the library, bring it to the Reference Desk, and you will be given a fake dollar. Take this dollar to the boxes in the story well and vote for the animal of your choice by placing it in the designated box.
Friends of the Library will match these dollars. The returned reading forms will be dropped into a box at the Reference Desk. Three names will be drawn weekly to each win a free book.
