Help us get to 500!

Today is the last day of week 3 of our Summer Reading Program, Get In The Game-Read! So far we have read stories to more than 160 children, hosted approximately 150 kids at a variety of programs and given away 507 prizes. Some of our weekly prizes include gift certificates to local restaurants such as Popolano's and Subway, free children's ticket to a Windy City Thunderbolts game and free movie rentals from the library. There are a lot of other prizes to choose from including small toys and trinkets.
We have 472 kids (from babies to 5th graders) signed up to participate in our progam, but it's not enough! We want more! Help us reach 500 children by bringing in your kids, your grandkids, tell your neighbors and co-workers. The Lansing Public Library Youth Services Department wants kids to Get InThe Game & READ! Just stop by the lower level Reference Desk, we'll write down the child's name, grade and school and give you a reading log and summer newsletter. You still have 3 weeks of reading, prizes and programs to enjoy!
