The winter reading program continues at the Dr. Frank L. Leggett Public Library in Bassfield and the Prentiss Public Library in Prentiss.
The program has seen great participation since its launch on January 11.
Participants can pick up a reading record at the Prentiss or Bassfield public library, then
write down the books they have read in their reading log and bring it to one of the libraries to receive a prize. Ten picture book titles or 10 chapters equals one free book.
“The cold winter months are a great time for families to read together,” said Jackie Miller, branch manager of the library. “We hope that many children will take this time to stay and read books.”
Some of the fun prizes included slime, snap bracelets, gliders, spinning tops, and several big prizes like the Contixo Kids learning tablet, a Rockit Twisr rotating learning game system from Leap Frog, and a Pankoo monocular telescope.
The Reading Program ends on March 12, but according to Branch Manager Jackie Miller, there’s still time to read books, turn in your Reading Record, claim Reward Dollars and get amazing prizes.
The Prentiss Public Library is located at 2229 Pearl Avenue in Prentiss. The Dr. Frank L. Leggett Public Library is located at 226-A Robert E. Blount Drive in Bassfield.
