Children & Families
WWW.POBLIB.ORG
PAT POLLACK, DEPARTMENT MANAGER
Registration for the following programs is required and limited. In order to register for a Family Center program, your child's date of birth
MUST be on file in the Family Center. A birth certificate or passport will be required as proof of age. Registration for all programs is age
specific. Sign up in the Family Center or by telephone with your Library card.
The concept
is simple, the
rewards are
priceless.
Read a book
BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
(any book) to
your newborn, infant, toddler, and/or
preschooler. The goal is to have read 1,000
books (yes you can repeat books) before
your precious one starts kindergarten.
Does it sound hard? Not really if you think
about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you
will have read 365 books in a year, That is
730 books in two years and 1,095 books in
three years. If you consider that most
children start kindergarten at around 5
years of age, you have more time than you
think (so get started).
The key is perseverance. To help, the
Family Center will offer incentives. Come
into Family Center and sign up today. You
will receive a packet and bag to get you
started.

One Trophy ........................ One School
This is the tenth summer for the Plainview-Old
Bethpage Summer Reading Trophy competition. The
contest is always a huge success. Last year's trophy
winner was the Stratford Road Elementary School,
who won a collection of books. The winning school
will be awarded the trophy during a special
presentation. This year we predict it will be a real
competition among the public schools in the district.
The rules are the same. The winning school will be
determined as follows:
·
Children must be registered in our Summer
Reading Program
Mrs. Ropke,
·
They must have read at least 3 books during School Media Specialist
the 7 weeks of the program
·
The school with the highest percentage of children who meet
the criteria will be awarded the Summer Reading Trophy
·
In case of a tie the winner will be decided by which school had
the highest percentage of children reading 6 or more books
Keep track of your school's progress on our display in the Family Center.
Happy Reading!
