Letter to Schools

April 12, 2007

Dear Colleague:

The Bluebonnet Public Library, in cooperation with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, is sponsoring the 2007 Texas Reading Club this summer. This year’s theme is “Sail Away With Books!”

Programs and activities are planned to promote reading as a leisure activity, stimulate curiosity, and encourage children to use library resources. The Texas Reading Club is self-paced and fosters reading success by asking children to record titles of books that they read or the length of the time they spend reading each day. A beautiful certificate created by renowned illustrator Diane Stanley and signed by the Texas governor will be awarded to each child who attains reading goals.

Additionally, the library has scheduled an array of activities to keep children productively occupied throughout the summer. All library programs and activities are free.

I would appreciate your help in encouraging students to visit the public library this summer. At your convenience, I would like to visit your school during May to introduce your students to the Texas Reading Club. I will call next week to arrange a time. I look forward to working with you and your students.
