The San Bernardino Public Library has now joined the San Bernardino County Library to partner with Baker’s Drive Thru for the Baker’s Book Club, to help promote reading among children and teens this fall. This reading for rewards program will begin on Monday, October 1 and will run through Saturday, November 17. The Baker’s Book Club will encourage youths to read and is perfectly timed to support students returning to school and help them get back into their school routines.
To participate in this program, visit any of the four San Bernardino City Libraries to sign up. Participants must be between the ages of 4 and 17, and a parent or guardian will need to sign to acknowledge reading progress.
Participants will be able to reach three levels of reading goals by reading and logging the number of pages read. They will receive a reward provided by Baker’s Drive Thru for each reading goal met. Rewards include certificates for free Hand Dipped Real Ice Cream Milkshakes, bean burritos, Single Baker Burgers, fries and more. Every child and teenager who reaches the level 3 reading goal will also be entered into a prize drawing for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab A, also provided by Baker’s Drive Thru.
In support and celebration of the Countywide Vision’s literacy campaign, Vision2Read, this program will strive to help improve literacy among children ages 4 to 17, with the help of incentives, by inspiring an excitement to read, providing achievable goals, and encouraging a reading routine at home.
