Library Reading Tips

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Help your patrons get into reading with these easy tips.

Bag a Book
Ask your young patrons to bring a favorite book. Have the children label sheets of 9" x 12" white construction paper with the book's title, author, and illustrator. Then have them draw and color their favorite scenes from the story on the paper. Next have them attach the paper to the front of a large paper grocery bag. Have the children cut holes in the bags for their arms and heads. Have the patrons wear their projects as they tell about their favorite books. To prolong the fun, arrange for students to parade through the adult section of the library or through classrooms. You can even have student practice the Dewey Decimal system by arranging the walking "books" in proper order.

Mystery Readers
Arrange for guest readers to come in each week. Have them come to share their favorite children's story. You can also coordinate guest readers with monthly themes. Have a dentist come in to read Throw Your Tooth on the Roof: Tooth Traditions from Around the World or Andrew's Loose Tooth. Guests may also wish to bring in visual aids or story related snacks. Keep the identity of he readers secret unit his or her arrival. Build a photo album of guest readers. Patrons can relive the story experience and remember great books they want to read.

Do you have a reading promotion activity you would like to share? Please post it at the Library Forum.
