Dig Into READING
2013 Summer Reading Program
* June 11 – August 3 * 2013
WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT…
The summer reading program that is sponsored by the Poynette Area Public Library is designed to encourage EVERYONE to read. We will present storytime programs and activities during the week, host THREE public performances this summer and have a reading incentive program for readers of ALL ages. As always there will be weekly guessing jars and big, bountiful baskets to win.
KICKOFF and REGISTRATION! June 11 – 15
Participants must register and pick up their first reading sheets at the library June 11-15, 2013. For the first 100 registrants there will be an extra giveaway. Also, on Tuesday you can buy a tasty brownie for 50¢ to jumpstart the Penny Jar fund.
Bring your pennies to pack the penny jar. Funds collected this summer will be used to support the Poynette Area Gardening Association. The PAGA members make our town so beautiful by filling the colorful flower planters on Main Street, maintaining the flower beds at Village Hall and the Maintenance Building on North Street and organizing the community garden, as well.
