Escape the cold this winter curled up with a good book!
Children birth through 5th grade read 5 books by January 31 to get a sticker. Teens in 6th through 12th grades read 2 books to get up to $10 of library fines waived from their accounts.
All books logged will go toward meeting Alexandria Library's reading goal. If all participating libraries meet one nation-wide reading goal, "Shark Tank" investor Mark Cuban will donate $25,000 to charity.
The program begins December 17. Enroll through Beanstack or pick up a paper log at any Alexandria Library.
Kids can either log books read or read to them or complete an early literacy activity sheet for a surprise.
Overdue fines up to $10 will be forgiven if you are a middle or high school student who registers, reads, and adds at least two book to your reading log.
