Celebrate Reading During National Library Week
Culver’s Sponsors Drawing Event in Partnership with Norwalk Public Library
Norwalk, Wisconsin, March 25, 2013 – In celebration of National Library Week, April 14-20, the Norwalk Public Library will join the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation and Culver’s restaurants in Sparta and Tomah in the “Create your own story” drawing campaign for children 11 and under.
This is the 17th year local Culver’s restaurants in Wisconsin have sponsored this event, which encourages children to read and celebrate their favorite book characters. Norwalk Public Library has participated in the contest since 2004 and three children submitted drawings in 2012.
Children can enter the drawing event by picking up drawing sheets from the Norwalk Public Library beginning April 1. Children are encouraged to draw book characters that they would like to meet at the library. Every child who completes a drawing will receive a “Be Our Guest” coupon for a free single scoop of frozen custard from Culver’s and be entered into a random drawing to win an additional prize of a free Team Scoopie Kids meal coupon. Drawings will be displayed at Norwalk Public Library through the month of April.
Books expose children to worlds both real and imaginary. Any time we can encourage a child to read and explore their imagination we want to make that effort. The National Library Week provides all of us with an important reminder of the positive role a story plays in shaping young minds and developing reading and language skills.
“Dr. Seuss, in I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!, said ‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go,’ “ said Jeanne Rice, Director of Norwalk Public Library.
