Summer Reading Program

We’ve partnered with Wild Rumpus bookstore to create a reading challenge for our Co-op Explorers.

Here’s how it works:

1. Register here (at bottom of page) by July 20, 2018 to let us know you’re reading with us, and sign up to receive your Co-op Kiddo t-shirt!

2. Log your minutes of reading, or being read to, on the reading log (you don’t need to read one of our books to count!). Print the reading log HERE or pick one up at your co-op.

3. When you’ve filled up the log, turn it in at your co-op customer service desk during July and receive your Co-op Kiddo t-shirt.

Join us for Wild Rumpus Story Time on Friday, June 29 at the Wedge Table
