Calling all readers! The Reading Patch Club begins next week! All Algonquin cardholders in grades K-8, plus preschoolers who have finished the 1,001 Books Before Kindergarten program, are invited to stop by the Youth Services desk to sign up.
In our Reading Patch Club, children earn patches for reading books. The more books they read, the more patches they can collect to decorate a backpack, hat, notebook, or anything else they would like! If a child earns five patches during the school year, they will receive a special tote bag (limit one bag per child per lifetime).
This program runs from Labor Day (September) to Memorial Day (May). Children may join the club at any time during the school year.
Do you need a few book suggestions to get started? Feel free to ask a librarian at your next visit to the library or take a peek at our grade level book lists. Happy Reading!!
