The Levine Library’s hotly contested annual reading contest starts October 14th. Librarian Ellen Cole invites Religious School students to read for fun and prizes. Students sign up in the Library now. Competitors read from October 14, 2018, until February 19, 2019.
This school year, the contest theme, Chag Sameach Read, celebrates our Jewish holidays. Your children can read their way through the year from Shabbat to Shavuot. As they read they are exposed to the wonders of the Jewish holidays through our books. They celebrate our celebrations!
Parents, encourage your children in grades 1 to 6 to enter and read. They read Jewish books at their grade level, then report to the Librarian. All types of Jewish books count. Readers gain bonus points when they read about fourteen different holidays. The more competitors read, the higher they place. Contestants receive a theme folder in which to list their books and a poster on which stickers mark their progress.
The contest offers rewards as happy as holidays. Five books reach Erev Yontif: each reader then wins a yogurt treat. Ten books or more celebrate Yom Tov: readers qualify for prizes at the Library Awards programs on Sunday, March 10, 2019, and Tuesday, March 12, 2019, when the Librarian announces the winners and presents their prizes.
Chag Sameach! Join the Jewish Holiday Reading Contest.
Tuesday 2:00 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
Sunday: 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 Noon

We truly appreciate your offers to donate books and DVD’s to the Levine Library. Please do not donate until you speak with Librarian Ellen Cole. No book stacks, cartons or bags should be left in the library where they are a hazard to people entering for meetings and reading. Your prior generosity has resulted in a happily packed room; there is no longer space for duplicates. Ellen is eager and delighted to talk with all donors.
