2022 WEEKLY FEATURED READERS

HOW IT WORKS

Featured Readers Ages 3 years old to going into 5th Grade.
Featured Readers must live in Mechanicsville, IA or be a rural patron in Mechanicsville, IA area.
One Featured Reader will be randomly selected a week. (A child can be Featured Reader only once per summer.)
Enter child's name at the Early Reader or Middle Reader weekly programs.
Library will pick one name a week from those who were in attendance that week.
Names drawn will get a sign in their yard for approximately 5-7 Days (1 week)
    SIGNS WILL BE PASSED FROM ONE READER TO ANOTHER.
    PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THE SIGNS.
    SIGNS WILL BE PICKED UP (RETURNED) & HANDED OUT ON FRIDAYS IF POSSIBLE.
    (*Rural patrons need to be able to pick-up and return signs on Fridays)
Parent/Guardian will fill out FEATURED READER FORM and will take a digital photo at the Feature Reader’s home (or a public area) and email it to mdehmer@mechanicsville.lib.ia.us.
The picture and short blurb about Featured Reader will be share on social media.
***Requires signed permission from parent guardian to participate | this is included in the FEATURED READER FORM.  
    (First name and details from the Featured Reader Form will be shared.)
 
(We will hold on to all the names and may continue with this program throughout the summer.  TBD)
