Mr. and Mrs. G’s Reading Club is back for another season at the Besore Memorial and Coyle Free Libraries! From now through Aug. 31, 2021, students in grades K-12 are invited to sign up for the reading club. Each participant must hold a current library card with their local Franklin County branch. Upon sign-up, participants receive a crisp $2 bill and their first blue slip, on which they will record their name; a parent or guardian’s signature; the title, author, and page count of the book they read; and a brief summary of the book. To get the next $2 bill, students must return the completed slip to their library in exchange for a new one, for a maximum of five entries per person.
Participants have the chance to win one of three cash prizes: third prize -- $50; second prize -- $100; first prize -- $250. All entries must be returned by Aug. 31. Winners from each library’s group of participants will be selected the first week of September.
