School’s back in session and the weather’s getting cooler. Sounds like it’s time to immerse yourself in a good book! So, stop on in to the library and stay awhile. We’ll put a pot of coffee on and you can get comfy in our new cozy corner! These wonderful new chairs were purchased with grant funds from the D.S. Flikkema Foundation.
Step right up, folks, it’s Showtime @ Schmaling! Summer Reading Program registration is coming up June 3-8 and the reading program runs June 10-July 6. Remember, our program is for preschoolers through adults. And, you can sign any little ones who have not yet entered Kindergarten up for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, as well. There is truly something for everyone!
Children entering preschool through 5th Grade win prizes for each reading slip they turn in up to the 5th and then get entries into the CHILDREN’S GRAND PRIZE DRAWING for $50! Young Adults (students entering grades 6-12) are entered into the weekly prize drawing for each book they read and when they reach 6 books will be entered into the YOUNG ADULT GRAND PRIZE DRAWING for $50! Adults are entered into weekly prize drawings for each book they read and when they reach 6 books will be entered into the ADULT GRAND PRIZE DRAWING for an overnight stay at Wild Rose Casino & Resort-Clinton and a $25 gift certificate at Coach’s Corner Bar & Grill at the Casino!
To register for our free Summer Reading Program, you must have a valid Schmaling or Albany Public Library Card. No library card is necessary for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten; the child, a parent, or caregiver must reside within the boundaries of the River Bend School District.
And remember, ANY registered River Bend student is eligible to get a Schmaling Library Card at no charge, regardless of where you live. Parents must accompany any child under age 14 to get a library card. These student cards are to be used ONLY BY THE STUDENT. Parents MAY NOT use their child’s card in lieu of paying the non-resident card fee.
