Glendale libraries urge youngsters to ‘Read for the Win’

From Glendale Press

“A new program unveiled this summer by Glendale public libraries encourages children to read books and track the titles they read online.In past years, children would log the books they’d read on paper at any library site.This year, under a new initiative by the California State Library, local librarians are pointing children to the website to track all the titles they read.Local librarians are still maintaining a paper log, said Sherry Sue, a children’s librarian at the Glendale Central Library.Under both “Read for the Win” programs, children can earn 100 points for every eight books they read, and every 800 points wins them a raffle ticket.They can enter as many as three tickets into a raffle. On Aug. 30, a winner will receive a gift card to the Montrose children’s bookstore, Once Upon A Time.”
