You may have seen an orange blob with a brain floating around the library. That’s RC (Reading Creature), our summertime mascot. RC loves all things orange: Cheetos, goldfish, pumpkins and even traffic cones! When he’s not filling his brain with knowledge at the library, he’s traveling around and experiencing the world through RC’s Diary. With RC’s Diary, kids participating in our Summer Challenge adopt RC for a period of time this summer and document all the fun they have together. RC is a big fan of traveling, whether it’s a trip to the grocery store or a trip to the beach. He’s also happy to hang out at home or in your backyard. RC cannot wait to meet all your family, friends and neighbors.
When RC and his diary are returned to the library, children will earn 20 bonus raffle tickets for our end-of-summer raffles. Students entering Grades K-5 can also use RC’s Diary as a way to complete their Summer Challenge square about writing. If your child cannot write letters and sentences, don’t worry; they can just tell you their answers for you to record!
