PAWS to READ
Join Byrd's Books for PAWS to READ - as we partner with DAWS for a second cat/kitten adoption morning at the bookstore with reading involved! Children are invited to read to kittens**. The kittens love the attention and the children get to share a story. Of course, there might be some kitten petting involved. Just want to attend and listen to a story?
The volunteers at DAWS (Danbury Animal Welfare Society- our local no-kill animal shelter) will be on hand to answer questions about cat (or dog) adoption.
**To sign up to have your child read to a kitten/cat at the bookstore please call us for scheduling and details. (203) 730-2973.
Bookmark Contest -now through May 31st
Every year during the month of May we have a summer bookmark contest. Kids and adults design a bookmark of a book they love. We have guest judges choose a winner and runner-up in each of five categories/age groups - then we print 100 each of the winning bookmarks.
The five winners get a $25 gift certificate to Byrd's Books and 25 of their bookmark to give away. We keep the rest. Honorable mentions get a $10 gift certificate.
We use our copies of the bookmarks to give out all summer long!
We are going to start the contest now and go through the month of May, so you have plenty of time. There is one submission per person, and teachers may use them with students, we just need the completed entries by May 31st. Instructions for submitting them are on the entry form. We cannot wait to see your favorite books in art!
