Starting April 1, 2010, children are invited to read books for a chance to win a bike, according to a press release from the Seattle Public Library system.

The Seattle Public Library will host the “Bikes for Books” reading program, which runs from Thursday, April 1 through Thursday, June 3.   A celebration and prize drawing will take place at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at the Fremont Branch Library, at 731 N. 35th St.

“Bikes for Books” is open to children in first through third grade. Participants are allowed to enter their names for the drawing once for every three books they read between April 1 and June 3. Each entry will require a short oral book report to a librarian. One girl and one boy each will win a bike, helmet and lock.  Winners must be present to collect their prizes.  All participants will receive certificates of accomplishment.

“Bikes for Books” is sponsored by the Masonic Doric Lodge No. 92 in Fremont.  The goal of the program is to inspire children to read.

For more information, call the Fremont Branch at 206-684-4084.
