Children ages 4 through 12 who visit the Murrieta Library may register at the Youth Services Desk to receive a “Cover to Cover” reading log bookmark and earn an “Achievement Award,” which is good for a free cheeseburger or hamburger at any In-N-Out Burger.
The fun kicks off beginning on Saturday, March 2.
For each book that a child reads at his or her reading level, library staff will validate the reading log with a special stamp.
When the child has five stamps and a parent’s signature, he/she will receive a “Food for Thought Achievement Award.”
For those kids who cannot read independently, they can list the books parents read to them.
“Sponsored by In-N-Out Burger, this program is intended to be a fun and yummy incentive designed to encourage kids to read,” said Supervising Librarian for Youth Services Allison Eagans. “We understand that since some parents may not want to use food as a reward, so an optional non-food prize will also be available.”
Children can earn up to three awards during the program.
Families can participate in the program through Saturday, April 13.
Participation in the “Cover to Cover” program is free and open to the public.
The Murrieta Public Library is located at 8 Town Square (Adams Avenue and Kalmia Street).
For more information about the program call 951-304-BOOK (2665) or visit the Library’s web page.
