Do you know a preschool
age child and want to read to them more? The Cambridge Elementary School and
Battenkill Books are happy to announce that they are continuing to offer
the FREE Cambridge Bookworm Preschool Book Club.
The Bookworm Club
is a free book lending program available to families residing in the Cambridge
School District with children ages 2-5. Many schools nationwide are involved in
similar 1,000 Book Clubs to encourage family reading, early literacy, and to
establish a lifelong love of reading.
The club “houses” 100
bags of 10 books each for young children and their families to borrow and read
during their preschool years. Children in the club have the opportunity
to read 1000 books by the time they reach kindergarten! The club is made possible
through community support and donations, Battenkill Books, Cambridge Schools
PTP and a grant from Books in Kids’ Hands.
Registration forms and
books can be picked up at the elementary school office or at Battenkill
Books. Once the registration is completed, the child can take home a bag.
One bag may be borrowed per child at a time and can be kept for
several weeks. Borrowing hours are Monday–Friday 8:30-2:00 at the
Elementary School office or at Battenkill Books during business hours (Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 10 am – 6 pm, Thursday 10 am – 8 pm, Saturday 10
am – 6 pm, or Sunday 10 am – 2 pm).
