READING CHALLENGE
June 14 through August 9
All kids 12 and under are eligible for the Reading Challenge—whether they’re reading to themselves or listening to stories read aloud. Reading Challenge participants sign up at the Sausalito Library and then visit the Library after every three hours of reading until they have read for 12 hours. Children get a prize after each visit. Children who read for 12 hours between June 14 and August 9 complete the challenge, get a free book, and are entered into a lottery for gift certificates, special prizes and more.
