At the beginning of the summer, our gnome started with empty forest bookshelves. Here we are, almost at the end of the summer, and the shelves are full to bursting! Each book represents three books read, so we’re well over 1000 books read and still counting! Our young readers have had a fabulous time trying to collect at 9 stickers and earn ballots for the prizes. And next week, we’ll draw for the Grand Prize and all the other prizes, so it’s going to be fun! (Of course, the kids can continue reading until the end of September to collect all their stickers…there just won’t be any more prizes.) And Agent G. will go to his new home. We’re going to miss him, but we hope he’ll enjoy his new family and continue on his fun journey in Carleton Place!
