Library Stars

September 7, 2009

CaptureThis week the Library is launching the Library Stars reading programme.

This is an in-house library reading programme to encourage primary school children to use their community library and read library books.

Once registered, the child receives a bookmark which they take home. When the child borrows some books using their library card, they earn one sticker for their bookmark. The bookmark must be produced to receive the sticker. When 10 stickers have been received, the child chooses a small incentive from the Lucky Dip box. After 20 stickers have been received, the child will receive a library book bag. If they complete the programme before the current year is up, they can start another bookmark. However, bookmarks cannot be carried over from year to year.

At the end of each year, all children who participate in Library Stars, regardless of whether they have received an incentive or not, will be presented with a Library Stars certificate.

    We do a variation on the theme … collect 10 stamps and get a free rental DVD (costs us nothing and parents love it!)
