Mrs. Kate Norman’s 5th grade class walked to the Cedar Springs Library on Monday, September 8, for their back-to-school library orientation and to get their Read-to-Ride reading logs.

Students were delighted to find out that by reading only 6 hours they could earn two free tickets to ride two carnival rides on Red Flannel Day, compliments of Elliott’s  Amusements, in partnership with the Cedar Springs Library and the Red Flannel  Festival. Logs were also sent electronically to area schools, charter schools, private schools and home schooling families.

All area Red Flannel town citizens and fans, grades K-8, are invited to drop by the Library to get a log or print one from the Library’s website: cedarspringslibrary.org.

It’s a royal salute to 75 years of volunteers! Get your students to join the red reading challenge this year. Logs can be cashed in at the Cedar Springs Public Library during open hours or on Red Flannel Day between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  at the Friends of the Library’s big book sale across the street from the Kent Theatre. Have you REaD a good book lately?
