Library Yard Signs for Top Readers
A Parish in Louisiana has the right idea -- yard signs for top readers! Kudos to the individual or team that came up with this outstanding idea and followed through on it. As a part of its summer reading program, Calcasieu Parish Public Library gives a certificate and a yard sign to youth who successfully complete ten books or have 10 books read to them by July 17. The sign declares: "A library champion lives here".
Yes, there is a web 2.0 connection here too: Parents can e-mail a digital picture of their reader with their yard sign; the pictures will then be posted on the library’s Web site, www.calcasieu.lib.la.us.
