Join us in celebrating summer with one of our favorite activities—READING!  
This year we have two challenges to choose from for kids; a Pre-reader for the littles and a Kids challenge for ages Kindergarten-14! Pick up your Reading Challenge form in either Fairhaven or Lynden (or print out the form from our website), then read your way along the path to receive prizes at the end. 

Here's how it works: 

“Read” your way along the game board and write the titles in the appropriate spaces. Feel free to use a separate piece of paper if the spaces are too small. Please do not use the same book more than once.

YOU CAN KEEP YOUR COMPLETED FORM as a fun reminder of all the great books that you read this summer! We’ll mark that you’ve completed the challenge then give you a slip to sign up for the give-away.

• Complete a Review Card. Choose a favorite book and tell us what you like about it on the provided shelf talker/review card - we’ll hang them up in the store!

• Complete the first five blocks and get TWO tickets to the Bellingham Bells' last game of the season agains the Kamloops NorthPaws on August 7! 
Complete all of the blocks and you’ll receive a $5 GIFT CERTIFICATE for Village Books & Paper Dreams, a COUPON for 20% off an item of your choice, and a certificate for a delicious COOKIE—compliments of the COLOPHON CAFE in Fairhaven or AVENUE BREAD in Lynden!
• Completed lists/review accepted through Tuesday, August 31, 2022.
Limit: 1 completed form per reader.

FOR THE SEVENTH YEAR IN A ROW! We will hold a drawing in early September from the completed forms and if we draw your form, Village Books will donate a $100 gift certificate to YOUR SCHOOL LIBRARY!  If a homeschooler wins, we will donate to the charity of your choice.
Stumped about what to read? Check out the great selections in our Chuckanut Reader or ask any of us at the store for help.

*PSST! Hey, adults and young adults - We have a YA and Adult Bingo challenge just for you. Click here for details or just print the form found below and get started!
