August 1st often feels like the beginning of the end of summer. The days are becoming noticeably shorter and the gardens no longer look lush and green. Many school start dates are in August, marking the last day of summer for school children.
August 31st is the last day of the “Be Creative @ your Library Summer Reading Program” at the Wauwatosa Public Library. If children read ten books at their reading level and write down the titles on their reading folder or a sheet of paper, they will receive coupons for free admission to Old World Wisconsin, Discovery World, a Milwaukee Brewers Game, the Milwaukee County Zoo and other area attractions. The children will also receive a Noodles & Company reading sheet with a coupon for a free bowl of noodles, soup or salad.
Children who are too young to read by themselves may listen to ten books and receive the same rewards. Names of both readers and listeners will be posted on the Children’s Library main bulletin board.
After the readers and listeners have finished their ten books, they have the opportunity to receive additional recognition and prizes by completing seven fun activities from the list on the back of the reading folder. Activities include read a book and see the movie, bring a friend to the library and read a recipe book and make one of the recipes. For more information, please call 414-471-8486.
