Team Read 2008: Summer Reading Scheme for children in all branches of Clare County Library.

Get Active – Get Reading is the advice being issued this Summer, by your local library to all children in your area.
Would you like to help your children
• become more enthusiastic about reading?
• maintain their reading level in the term ahead?
• return to school feeling confident about their reading and ready to learn more?
Clare County Library will kick off the long holidays for thousands of children in Clare by inviting them to join in this year’s Summer Reading Scheme, Team Read. For the seventh successive year Library staff hope to build on the love of reading that has been fostered through schools during term time and to continue the promotion of books and libraries as an enjoyable and worthwhile activity throughout the summer. In association with the Reading Agency in the UK, Clare County Library will supply promotional packs to each child who joins the scheme in their local library and undertakes to read a minimum of six books during July and August. Children signing up to take part in Team Read will receive specially designed membership cards, and various incentives along the way to encourage them to complete the scheme. Children who complete the Summer Reading Scheme will receive a special certificate of merit celebrating their achievement at an awards evening in September. The Summer reading Scheme is an example of Parents, Teachers and Librarians Working together. Parents can encourage their children to join the scheme; teachers can encourage children to visit their local library and join the Summer Reading Scheme before they leave school in June for summer holidays and Library staff will be on hand in all branches to advise on suitable material for all Team Readers.
