Summer Reading is over!

Yay! No stats available yet, but we were up in July (by quite a bit), so I’m hoping we’ll be up overall. Summer Reading in Canada is (in my limited experience) a smaller deal than in the US, but it’s still kind of a big deal–other than story times, it’s the one thing that everyone knows we do, and also (sadly) it’s also the one thing that everyone feels free to tell me how they think it should be run. Sigh. Anyway, we do it pretty simply. We do take part in the TD Summer Reading Club, and we awared small prizes for every 3 books a child reads, up to 12. I’m hoping that next year we can extend to something a little more activitity based, especially for the younger readers, and also maybe have fewer junk prizes, but I do have to say, our kids sure do love them some dollar-store-type toys!
