FAQ For Grown-Ups
What if we don’t do an activity and/or read every day?
Don’t worry! You can still fill in the online form to enter the prize drawings!
How long should my child read every day?
Experts recommend 20 minutes of reading per day, to prevent the ‘summer slide’, but you can set your reading goals to fit your family’s needs.
What should my child read?
Summer is a great time to allow your children free choice in their reading materials. Research shows that children who are allowed to choose their own books are more interested in reading, engage more in the books they read, and have a more positive response to reading. Audiobooks and reading aloud to your kids counts!
Still need help choosing a good book? Miss Sara would love to fill a basket for you. Let her know the ages and interests of your children, and she will get a basket full of library materials ready for you to take home. Anything from books to ukuleles to STEM kits!
What if I lose my calendar?
You can pick up another calendar at the library, or access it here! You don’t need a calendar to get your weekly Grab-Bag.
