NOW THROUGH AUGUST 31
SUMMER READING PROGRAM
SUMMER READING PICKS: GRADES 5 – 6
Summer Reading Program
"Carpe Librum! Seize the book!" That's our motto this summer at Changing Hands Bookstore. After all, what could be better way to escape the heat than a great book?

In that spirit, we're proud to announce a brand-new summer reading program for young readers going into grades K-8.


HOW TO GET STARTED: Come in to Changing Hands to pick up a summer reading bookmark for your grade level. Hang on to that bookmark, because it's also how you track which books you've read! Turn it back into us before August 31 for a bunch of really cool prizes.

WHAT YOU GET TO READ: Here's the good part. We've put our heads together and assembled a great list of six recommended paperback books per grade level. Just pick three that look interesting to you and then any three of your own — for a total of six books to read for the summer — and you're set!

HOW TO GET YOUR PRIZE: Not much could be better than books, but how about books and a party? On Saturday, August 11, come down to our end of summer party and bring in your bookmark filled out with your name, grade level, and school or home-school group to collect your prize! The schools with the most summer readers are eligible for an additional reward! We'll also announce the four grand prize winners, one per grade group. If you can't make the party, don't worry, you can still turn in your bookmark until Friday, August 31 to collect your reward.
