Over 500 players from Pre-Readers to Kids to Teens to Adults are reading and coloring and spinning and winning. The Alameda County Library’s Summer Reading Game lasts all summer. (Albany Library’s game shuts down in late August.)
The first Bingo winners are cashing in! Book-loving kids are hitting Albany Bowl and Togos, trekking to Lawrence Hall of Science and the Chabot Space Center–and a few have scored their final prize of a Book and Ferry Ride and chance at the county raffle.
Teen and adult prize winners are faced with the difficult choice between blow-up globe or squeezy ball. Psychological studies reveal that globe-pickers have dreams of world domination and squeezy ball choosers want us all to get along. (Don’t worry, peaceniks! The inflatable globe is accurate and will help kids pass their SATs. And the globe–like all dreams of world conquest–will lose its air, especially after a good game of soccer!)
This Monday we draw our first Albany Raffle Prize for each age group: four Solano Avenue gift cards. (Yes, the entire card can be spent on Ice Cream!)
