2013 Reading Challenge, Halfway Check-In

At the beginning of the year, the children's room staff issued a reading challenge for 2013. For every finished book, or 20 minutes spent reading, we would add a colorful dot to the wall behind our desk. We asked for your help in making the room as colorful as possible!

It's now July, halfway through 2013, and we thought now would be a good time to check in and see the progress.

Dots Wall

As you can see, the entire wall behind our desk is filled with dots. Thanks to everyone who helped us reach this milestone. Now we're debating: Where to go next? The ceiling, maybe?

For those of you who like a little more facts with your pictures, here is the 2013 Reading Challenge by the numbers:

Are you ready to get your dot up on the wall? Summer Reading is the perfect time to start!

Just stop by the children's room the next time you're at the library and tell us about your last great read.
