Cool! Summer Reading Program to Include Adults!

June 23, 2006 at 10:08 am

Cool! The Parsippany libraries will be including adults in their summer reading program – with prizes!!!

I think this is great for two reasons:

1) They are including adults because, “…if more parents read, more kids will, too…” (see full article in today’s Morris Ledger here .)


2) They are using their website as a 24/7 branch for this program:

In previous years, we heard that with kids in camp all day (parents) can’t get them here for programs because they don’t have a lot of spare time and we appreciate that,” Beline (the library director) said. “Now, it’s true, we’re open 24-7.Article here.

This is so great and is a great example of the library meeting the needs of
its patrons. You can’t make it in during the summer days? We’ll put part of
our summer reading program on our website and open it up to adults to
encourage more participation all around! Great!

The prizes for adults include themed gift baskets. For example: the Italy basket has pasta, sauces and cookbooks; the beach basket has towels, flipflops, books, etc… I know I sure would love to win one of those!

I also love that they got such a nice write-up in their newspaper.

AND the “librarians are wearing ‘Have you joined the club?’ T- shirts”! COOL indeed!
