For years, counselors have read chapter books to their campers before bed. Who doesn’t enjoy a good story before falling asleep at the end of a busy day?
This year, some of our book-loving/hoarding staff members decided to step up GAC’s reading game. Inspired by the many mini libraries that have popped up around the country, where anyone can pick up and drop off books at no cost, we’ve decided to create our own “Little GAC Library” that will be located in Chipmunk, an easily accessible location for all campers.
GAC will be stocking the library with kid-friendly books, and we hope that campers will be encouraged to take books that sound interesting to them as well as leave books that they’ve already finished reading. We hope the Little GAC Library will encourage campers to read for fun, appreciating and enjoying the stories, rather than associating reading solely with homework. We might even be brainstorming a possible reading free time activity…we’ll see where our ideas take us.
