Our football season has ended – sadly. Opening Day is still months away. Fortunately, the basketball season is in full swing on the court – and in the library.
The Milwaukee Bucks Read to Achieve Library Challenge season runs from January 7 through February 27. Kids, in grades one through eight, are invited to get in the game – the reading game. They score a point for every page read. Readers who score 500 or more points for pages and return their folders by February 27 earn a ticket voucher for a Bucks’ game. Those All-Star readers may choose between the Saturday April 4 match-up with the Orlando Magic or the Sunday April 12 game with the Brooklyn Nets. Family members may also order tickets at special prizes.
Readers who score 750 points or more will have their names entered into the Bucks’ drawing for an autographed basketball and a chance at some All-star opportunities – being part of the Bucks starting line-up, being an honorary co-captain for the game, or being part of the half-time festivities. Shorewood Library also has a special prize drawing for our All-star readers.
There’s still time to get in the game. Just stop in the library to join the reading team and pick up the reading folder, free poster, and bookmark. Then start reading. It’s a slam dunk!
