Reading Challenge!

This year, we’re kicking it up a notch for summer reading; if the Teens read more hours than the Children, Miss Wendy will cut her hair short, dye it pink and spike it! If the Children read more than the Teens do, Mr. Dave will shave his head and dye his beard blue.This will be a big year, with high stakes so we need both teams to be on top of logging their hours!

What those crazy librarians will do to get kids to read!
