Imagine Your Story Summer Reading 2020 WILL be performed in the year 2021!!! We’ll explore the world of stories together in the Guthrie CSD & King County Library. Fairy tales, folk tales, funny stories, scary stories, adventures, mysteries, and so much more. Just read a book and discover new worlds!
Summer Reading begins Wednesday, June 9, 2021 and will continue every Wednesday through July 7th. We will have an ‘Awards Field Trip’ sometime between July 16th and July 30th depending on accommodations’ from a couple of entities we are waiting to hear from. Usually we visit an educational venue, Gatti’s Pizza for a meal and token rewards, and Barnes and Noble bookstore (travel, meal, tokens, and books from B & N incentive awards which requires filling out ‘their’ reading log, are provided and paid for – if you so choose to travel on the school bus!!!) However, we might just have to spend a fun and rewarding day in Guthrie! COVID changed the way we all interact! We will let you know ASAP.
Requirements for attending the field trip, from home or afar, are to attend 2 of the 5 programs and read 8 books on level, or for the older readers, every 30 pages read counts as 1 book. Remember, everything counts for reading, which includes books, audiobooks, comic books, magazines, newspapers, cereal boxes, reading aloud, or being read to.
Some of the benefits to readers participating in summer reading include:
* Encouragement where reading becomes a lifelong habit.
* Reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities.
* Reading over the summer helps children retain their skills.
Kiddos and students should attend the 2020-2021 age-appropriate program. HOWEVER – we know parents may need their multiple children to attend only one program together and we will try to accommodate this!
