While these events have passed, I’m posting them here
so that you can keep an eye out (and join in the fun)
next time they roll around. Our library usually hosts these events twice a year and are favorite for my boys.
A Book Auction!
During this past auction, several chapter books went for as low as $10. Other books sparked a bidding war with bids climbing as high as $70.
Others bid on books no one else is interested in so as to get the maximum amount of books possible. Each of my boys came home with four new books and smiles.
This non-competitive game of bingo features bingo cards with words rather than numbers. Participants have to read the words on the card to play the game.
My first grader was a bit nervous at first, unsure of some of the holiday words featured on his card. However, after just one game I saw his confidence and competence rise.
In the end, his voice rang out, “BINGO!” and he proudly chose a new book for his prize.
I try to remember to pick the newsletter up at the library – but I always forget. I have received the newsletter by email – but it’s too long to digitally peruse. Instead… for a steal-of-a-deal life membership I can do my part to support local literacy AND receive a monthly newsletter updating me on the latest and greatest services provided by the regional resource.
