Beginning Thursday, April 1, the Seattle Public Library begins its “Books for Bikes” program to encourage children to read. 

Fremont Library

The program, sponsored by the Masonic Doric Lodge No. 92 in Fremont, invites children in first through third grade to read books for a chance to win a bike.  For every three books they read between April 1 and June 3, participants will get to enter their name once in the drawing.  Each entry will require a short oral book report to a librarian. 

The celebration and drawing will take place on Saturday, June 5, at 4:00 p.m. at the Fremont Branch (731 N. 35th St).  One girl and one boy will each win a bike, helmet and lock.  Winners must be present to win.  All participants will receive certificates of accomplishment.  For more information, call the Fremont Branch at 206-684-4084.
