Bikes for Books!

Saw this post yesterday on Publicola.  The Fremont branch of the Seattle Public Library (sponsored by the Fremont Doric Masonic Lodge #2)  is running a contest to get kids to read more.  For every three books a child (grades 1 - 3) reads, his or her name is entered in a drawing for a free bike, lock and helmet.  The drawing will be held on June 5, with one boy and one girl winning. 

I think that this is an awesome encouragement to get kids reading, and what better way to start off the summer than with a new bike!

Books to keep your brains occupied and a bike to stay fit and happy! Fantastic idea!

Peace :)
