We're on our way!

Congratulations to our 275+ summer readers who have already entered 597 books!

Remember, if Stratford readers complete at least 10,000 books, Miss A will sing a rock song at your ice cream party!  Help her get on the stage!
And... any child who reads at least 10 books this summer can apply to be a back-up singer in her act. Stop by the Library for the application.

Summer Reading 2015

Lots of people ask us when the end-of-summer parties are going to be, to put them on your calendar. So here's a little advance notice about Summer 2015.

The Summer Reading Challenge party for readers will be Wednesday, August 12 around 4-4:15 p.m.
The Read-to-Me party for children not yet reading on their own will be Thursday, August 13 in the morning, 11 or 11:30 a.m. (Check back for details)

In order to qualify for the party, children must read or enjoy the specified number of books/activities and receive their tickets. Older children get their tickets by RSVP'ing to the mayor's office; younger children receive their tickets at the Library when they finish their activities.

See you at the Library!

Final Results!

Summer reading ended Saturday, and we wanted to congratulate our 1005 readers who read 16,986 books and activities. That is truly awesome!

You may continue to enter books and to print out your list of books for school until September 4, 2013. Sorry, we're all out of prizes! You cleaned us out this year (Way to go!).

Prize drawings will take place after August 22 and no later than August 27. Winners will be called, and there will be a list of winners posted at the Library. We thank everyone for their entries.

Just to keep everyone excited, we will be having a reading program this fall that will begin November 4. It is called Read Around Stratford. Children will be encouraged to read books and enjoy other activities. Please stop by the Library in November to sign up!
