Bikes for Books is a reading incentive program for grades K-6 that our lodge has sponsored for several years in partnership with the Lake City Branch of the Seattle Public Library.
This is how the program works:
For every book a child reads, they get a ticket to fill out and put into a drawing for a new bike. The program runs from January until mid April , and again from May to Mid Septmber. At the end of each bi-annual reading incentive program period we will draw one ticket for a boy, and one for a girl from each eligible group of students. The child whose name is on the ticket will win a new bike and helmet. So the more books they read, the more chances they get!
