Congratulations to the 460 youth who completed Tipp City Public Library’s summer reading club. In case you haven’t visited the library since summer club ended on August 4, make sure you do so soon, because there is a prize packet for each of you.
That packet is filled with coupons for free and discounted prizes from area businesses. As they do each year, businesses such as Cairn’s Collectibles, Foodtown, Dairy Queen, Fazoli’s, and many others provide these incentives as a way of supporting the library’s effort to keep kids reading through the summer months.
To receive the coupon packets, children in fifth grade and younger were required to read 15 books, and older students had to read ten. This year Tipp youth reported reading 13,807 books. Way to go.
UPCOMING FOR ADULTS
Make new friends who enjoy similar interests when you join the library’s Booklover’s Book Discussion Group. The next discussion is set for 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 24, and the topic will be The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
The book marks a first-time foray into young adult literature for this bestselling author, and it garnered prestigious honors such as the Horn Book Award and the National Book Award – winning in the category for young people’s literature.
Find out more about the book at the library’s website at http://www.tippcitylibrary.org, or ask for a copy at the front desk.
The library is located at 11 E. Main St., and the telephone number is 667-3826.
