About a week ago, in connection with our ** Summer Children's Story Time on Tuesday Mornings at 10:30 ** I mentioned Gracie the Groundhog and said I would have more to say about her later.
The wait is over. Gracie is the leader, the general, the inspiration for our exciting new Summer Reading Program for Children. We will create a card for your child and stamp it every time he or she buys a book. When the card is full your young reader gets to choose something from the prize box. At the end of the summer, the child who has accumulated the most "Gracie Points" gets a big box of literary goodies. And there's more: participants in the program get 10% off children's books.
What possible reason could there be to not participate? None, as far as I can tell. So be sure to sign your child up for this wonderful program. Not only will you be helping your young reader, you will be helping us. For Gracie is fully expecting us to make this program a success. And we don't want to have to deal with an angry groundhog,
