While at the Youth Services desk, I had the opportunity to help out with a couple of reading programs. I was asked to help update the patch list in Microsoft Office Access for the new session of the Reading Patch Club.
The Reading Patch Club is for children from birth through 8th grade, just like our Summer Reading Program. http://geplyouth.blogspot.com/2008/10/sign-up-for-reading-patch-club.html
It is for Glen Ellyn residents and children who attend Glen Ellyn schools.
- Participants keep track of the amount of time they spend reading or listening to someone read, and earn one patch for every 5 hours of reading time (limit 2 patches per month).
- Participants may read or listen to anything they like.
- With the 6th patch, participants receive a canvas tote bag!
The Reading Patch Club runs October 1 – April 30 each year.
Sign up now at the Youth Services desk!
I also helped look up and find books about numbers for an upcoming reading program. One of the books was missing but I found an interesting title and added it to the list, which was approved by the librarian I was working with.
