2014 Summer Reading Club: Fizz, Boom, Read for kids ages 0 through High School.

What is the summer Reading Club? In addition to our many programs (see this event calendar for specific dates, times and descriptions), on Monday June 9th, you may begin earning prizes by reading or listening  to books, comic books, magazines, eBooks, newspapers, audiobooks, or  Dial-a-stories. You may register anytime during the summer. There's no cost to register. Keep track of all of your reading by logging your reading online. NEW FOR 2014...the summer of science! We are embracing science and technology and only using online logging (no paper tickets). You can't start reading unitl June 9th, but you CAN pre-register any time! The weblink for online logging can be found on our main webpage. If you do not have internet access, there will be a computer available for logging at the library. Assistance will be available on Monday evenings from 6-8pm or by appointment. There is also a short video tutorial on how to log books on the main webpage. 

Who may participate? Kids of any age, babies through high school may have books read to them or may read their own books. Children who read to other children may count those books for themselves too. 

How can I earn prizes? For every five "books" you read and add to your account, you will earn one "Beaker Buck" to spend on prizes at the library's prize store. All beaker bucks must be redeemed by Saturday August 16th ay 1:30PM.

How do I log my reading? Every 50 pages counts as one book. If a book is less than 50 pages, count that as one book. If you don't know how many pages a book is, we can help you figure that out, or you can go to the library catalog to see how many pages it is (audio and eBooks count as the number of pages of the print book). 

How do I win a back pack? Every week, Brandywine Community Library will raffle off a backpack from the tickets turned in over the past week. 

What should I read? The choice is all yours. You may read books from this library or from another library. You may borrow a book from a friend or read a book that you have at home. You may read books by any author or about any subject that interests you. Just think about all the fun you'll have reading!

How do I "buy" prizes? For every completed "book" you will receive one "beaker buck". Save your beaker bucks to spend in our "Summer Reading Store". There are toys, puzzles, games, books, summer reading t-shirts and special raffles to participate in. Beaker bucks can only be spent at Brandywine Community Library. 

THE GRAND PRIZE - One lucky boy or girl will win a Kindle Fire(7" HD,Wi-Fi, 16GB). The winner will be drawn at random from all of the properly completed books logged during summer reading. The drawing is for Brandywine Community Library Summer Reading participants only. There will only be one winner. Remember the more books you read, the better your chances are of winning!! The Grand Prize winner will be posted on Brandywine Community Library's Facebook page by 6pm on Saturday, August 16th!
