Summer Reading Programs at Barnes and Noble, Borders, Bookmans, and the Pima County Library

Have your child do the summer reading program at Barnes and Noble and they can earn a free book! Visit the website for more details, downloadable journal and activities.

Here's How It Works:

1. Kids read any eight (8) books of their own choosing.
2. Kids use the Summer Reading Journal to tell us their favorite part of each book. A parent/guardian signs the journal when it's complete. You can also get a Spanish-language Reading Journal.
3. Children bring their completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 26th & September 7th, 2009.
4. We'll give them a coupon for a FREE book! They choose from a list of exceptional paperback titles.*

* Eligible books will be listed on the coupon. Choices must be made from available stock. No special orders. Limit of one (1) form per school-age child (grades 1-6), please. Incomplete forms will be ineligible for free books.

Thanks, Making Life Sweet!

Today while I was at Bookmans, I picked up the infor

mation on their summer reading program.

Your child gets a FREE book just for reading ten books!

How it works.

For each book the child reads at their age level, the child needs to write a paragraph about the book.

With the paragraph include:

Name of Child and age

Name of Book

Author's name

Why you liked the book

Kids can even draw a picture for younger kids! Once they've read their ten books, bring their paragraphs into Bookmans and they'll give you a coupon for $5 to use toward a book, comic or magazine.

Plus don't forget the great program offered at the Pima County Library for kids or teens! We have such a great library system here. If your local library doesn't have it, you can request it. If the county doesn't own the book and it has been out for more than a year, they will search and borrow it from another library participating in the Inter library loan program. It doesn't cost you a cent.
How to participate
Using the Gameboard
  • Visit your local library and pick up a free gameboard any time between May 21 and July 18.
  • Start counting the time you spend reading.
  • Mark your progress on the gameboard.
  • Every time you read 6 hours, bring your gameboard into any Pima County Public Library and get a prize.
You can also track all the kids progress online this year. Click here to visit their website!
