Today is the day…
The library will be hosting its 9th Vikings Read Kick-Off today during lunch and we would like to invite YOU. We will be open at lunch and set up gallery-style so you can come check out this year’s titles. We will be showing a snazzy video to promote the program and Vikings Talk committee members will be around to help promote the books they have read. It’s a fun event so bring your lunch, drag a friend and come check out Vikings Read 2015!
Need more convincing? Read more about it here.
Today, teachers from each of your classes will be reading short selections from four of this year’s Vikings Read titles. Don’t have a class during one of the blocks? Make sure to come down to the library at the beginning of the block to hear one of the librarians read each of the selections. We hope this inspires you to continue the challenge either by reading our Vikings Read titles or any book that sparks your interest!
Also, come down to the library after school today for your chance to win one of five Chapters gift cards. All you need to know is the title and author of each of the books read to you today. Contest closes at 4pm on Monday and winners will be drawn and announced starting on Tuesday.
Winners names have been posted in Wednesday’s bulletin and in front of library. Check it out to see if you have one a prize! Thanks to all who participated – it was our largest D.E.A.R. contest turnout to date!
Which of the titles read to you today have sparked your interest?
