Challenge #4: BACK TO SCHOOL!

School is back!

Sometimes school doesn’t seem fun. But being with friends and doing new things IS fun, and those are a lot of the things we do at school.

And here’s the coolest part: the more you learn, the more fun things you can do! Whether that’s learning a sport or a game, or how to make cool things, or reading stories or learning about animals or any of a ton of things!

So for September’s challenge, I would like you to tell me what you are most excited about learning this year. It doesn’t have to be a thing you learn at school, though it can be.

Every kid who writes up a paragraph on what they are most excited about learning this year and delivers it to me before September 30th will get a pop-it notebook!

CLOSED Challenge #1!

We’re just starting out, so I will make this one easy. ☻

Tell me about your favorite story.

I do prefer that you do it in writing if you can, at least 1 paragraph. You can even grab a Dr. Seuss pencil from the library to write it if you want. Tell me why you like that story, and what makes it special!

Every kid who does this and gets their entry to me before the end of October 11th will get a PRIZE!!!

How do you submit an entry? Easy! write it on a piece of paper and bring it to me. I live right there in the house behind the library (to the left, the gray-ish house). Come to the front door (please don’t step on the bushes or flowers!) and ring the doorbell to give me your entry and get your prize. If I’m not home, try later, because I’m home most of the time.

If you have questions, use the contact form here or knock on the door to ask me!

Are you ready for a CHALLENGE?!


This isn’t just about reading. This is also about finding the FUN in reading. A lot of that is just about finding books that you like, but sometimes it’s easy to get stuck.

So every couple of weeks, I’m going to put a challenge on the blackboard of the Kids’ book section. Kids (and anyone who wants to do it) who finish the challenge by Saturday evening of that week and bring me the results will get a prize or a treat!

If you don’t want to check the library every day for new challenges, you can come to this site and click the ‘Challenge’ link at the top for updates!

If you have ideas for challenges, use the form on the right to send your ideas to me.
