Ferguson Summer Reading Club Takes Off
The program entices children to read by rewarding them when they finish a set number of books.
The first completed book nets a participant a pencil that changes colors when you grab it. If that doesn't impress your child, no worries, it gets better. Just tell them to keep reading.
The third completed book earns a drawstring backpack, said Elizabeth McKay, a youth services librarian at Ferguson Library.
A child who finishes a fifth book will have their name registered and sent to the Stamford school they attend as a reward. Also, completing that fifth book should earn the reader an invite to the Palace Theatre for a special show by the "Swingset Mamas."
