Kids Summer Reading Club Guidelines

  • The “Fizz, Boom, Read” summer reading club is for babies up to students entering grade 5 in the fall.
  • Beginning May 31, sign up for the club, or visit us at the Hancock County Public Library in Greenfield, the Sugar Creek Branch in New Palestine, or aboard the Techmobile.
  • Read a book. Then log it online. Need help? Ask at the children's desk.
  • Read and log seven books, and pick out a free book (1 per child).
  • Keep reading books all summer long for “U-pick” prizes.
  • Pick up small prizes, including your free book, by August 1.
  • Each book that you read and log online creates an entry into our grand prize drawing. The more you read, the greater your chances. You might win Indiana State Fair tickets, a new bicycle, or a kid's eReader tablet. The drawing takes place after August 1, and winners will be notified. Grand prizes must be picked up by 8/8/14.

I liked it because Spot was in sand digging. It was getting into Sally's eyes. Dick and Jane saved Sally and have her an umbrella.
