Earn “K9 Bucks” by Reading This Summer

Can you believe it’s June already? Thank goodness this summer is looking more normal than last year! Knutson Memorial Library is gearing up for summer with our “Tails & Tales” reading program which will give young readers a chance to help take care of Vernon County’s new K-9 friend, Dax, by reading. For every 4 books a child reads at their reading level (pre-readers can be read to), they will earn one K-9 Buck which will go on the reading graph in the library as well as a small prize to keep. The K-9 Bucks aren’t real money that you can spend, but at the end of summer the library Friends will donate an equal amount of real money to the Vernon County K-9 Unit to help keep Dax happy and healthy.

The program begins June 7th and continues until August 16th which will give you lots of time to earn “Bucks”; the top three readers will receive a special prize and everyone who participated will receive a “thank-you” certificate. Your child can sign up and log reading online by going to the library website, https://coonvalleylibrary.wrlsweb.org/ and clicking on the Beanstack icon (they will need to visit the library to add their bucks to the graph and receive their prizes) OR they can come to the library and pick up log sheets and check on their progress.
