Join your friends at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth as we ‘Make a Splash’ and read our way through the summer. You can read by the lake, at the beach, or in your bath tub!
Each week, keep track of the time you spend reading. Your goal is to read 1120 minutes by the end of 8 weeks. That means you’ll read 140 minutes a week, or 20 minutes a day.
Bring your ‘Make a Splash!’ log each week to the library to have it stamped. When you meet your weekly goal, you can choose a free book, and you will be entered in the weekly drawing for great prizes.
Everyone who participates in Make a Splash is invited to an ice cream party with Frisbee fun on the library’s back lawn on Saturday, August 14th at 3 pm.
Jump in readers!
