Summer is a season to kick back, relax, soak in the sun... and perhaps enjoy plenty of extra reading time while you're at it! For this reason, BookIt Nook is offering two summer programs for school-age readers in Kitsap County. We hope you participate in one (or both!) of these super fun opportunities!
Summer Reading Bingo
Between July 1 – August 29, 2021, play the BookIt Nook Summer Reading Bingo and complete 5 squares in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) to be entered to win a $20 gift certificate from BookIt Nook. If you complete all 25 squares, you will be entered into a grand prize drawing!
Bookmark Design Contest
Have you ever wished to share your love for reading in a creative way with the community? Now is your chance! Bookit Nook is about to print two children's bookmarks, which will both be handed out for free to visitors of our store. The best part is: we would like local young readers to design the bookmarks for us!
The bookmark design theme is: Memories of Reading
- The contest is open to anyone entering grades K-12 in Fall 2021.
- Entries must be completed using the official entry form (PDF).
- One entry per person.Artwork must relate to the theme, though interpretation of the theme is up to the artist – be creative!
- You may use pencils, colored pencils, crayons, paint, or markers.
- All art must be original. (No DC/Marvel, Disney, Harry Potter, Pokemon, etc.)
- Designs must be turned in to BookIt Nook no later than 5:00pm on Sunday, August 29, 2021.
Two winning designs will be selected - and the artists will be notified - by September 6, 2021. One winner will be selected from the K-5th primary grade levels, and a second winner will be selected from the 6-12th secondary grade levels.
