One of the few things as healthy and fun for kids as getting a bike is reading a book. Well, Seattle Public Library is launching their Bikes for Books program today. So kids, get reading. You have until May 21 to read at least ten books. With a bike on the line, I’m sure you can do it!
No word yet on whether there will be an adult version of the program. I have my fingers crossed, but I’m not holding my breath. How many books would it take to get one of these? ….
Children are invited to read books for a chance to win a bike. The Green Lake Branch of The Seattle Public Library will host a “Bikes for Books” reading program from Tuesday, March 1 to Saturday, May 21. A celebration and prize drawing will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 23, at the Green Lake Branch, 7364 E. Green Lake Dr. N.
Winners will be chosen at the drawing and must be present to win. Certificates of accomplishment will be presented to all participants. Free parking is available at the branch.
“Bikes for Books” at the Green Lake Branch is open to children in first, second and third grades. Participants are allowed to enter their names for the drawing once for every ten books they read between March 1 and May 21. Each entry will require a short oral book report to a librarian. One girl and one boy each will win a bike and a helmet.
“Bikes for Books” is sponsored by the Masonic Lodge in Green Lake.
