The Seattle Public Library is hosting a “Bikes for Books” reading program from Oct. 16 – Dec. 16.
“Bikes for Books” is open to children in first through third grade, and fourth through fifth grade. Participants are allowed to enter their names for the drawing once for every three books they read between Oct. 16 and Dec. 16. Each entry will require a short oral book report to a librarian. One girl and one boy from each age category will win a bike, helmet and lock (four winners total). Winners must be present at the Dec. 18 celebration to collect their prizes. All participants will receive certificates of accomplishment.
“Bikes for Books” is sponsored by the Masonic Doric Lodge No. 92 in Fremont, to inspire children to read. The prize drawing and celebration is at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18, at the Fremont Branch, 731 N. 35th St.
