The Reach for the Stars program, through Usborne books, is a pledge-based reading incentive program that encourages the habit of daily reading and gets children excited about literacy. For ten days (February 18-27), children will read for thirty minutes each day (non-readers,15), and collect pledges for the minutes they read. Fifty-percent of pledges raised stay with the child in the form of books from the Usborne catalog. The other fifty-percent goes to the Children’s Room to help purchase books and to help plan an awesome Summer Reading Program. Children that receive ten pledges of $10.00 also receive a special Kid-Kit for free! Special prizes will be awarded for most pledges, reading over 1000 minutes, and most minutes read! For more information, stop by the Children’s room, or email Miss Sue at childrensprogram@kingston-library.org. Packets are now available.
