CCC Loves Literacy

Cool Care Club loves literacy and supports it both at CCC and in our community in several different ways.

At the club, a small library is available with a wide selection of books appropriate for all levels of readers.  Kids are welcomed and encouraged to bring a book with them and read whenever the mood strikes.  :)  CCC also has a Book Exchange Box where children can bring in a book they own and exchange it for a different one.  This popular feature is a great way to help keep at-home libraries fresh and interesting. In the summer, the group is signed up for the summer reading programs at Manhattan Public Library and at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School.  Children have an opportunity to check-out books most days of the week.

Cool Care Club believes in supporting literacy in the wider community as well. CCC has helped sponsor the Manhattan Public Library's summer reading program, the past three years, by providing over 3000 new books for give-away incentives.  Mr. Chris is always looking for opportunities to give away books.  In addition to books for trick-or-treaters at Halloween and other fun projects, CCC recently started hosting "Book & Cookie" Parties. Children currently enrolled at the club, have the opportunity to earn chances to win a party for their classmates at school.  If their name is then drawn, Mr. Chris coordinates with the child's teacher and schedules a time to visit their classroom as a guest reader.  Afterwards, each class member gets to choose a book to keep as their own...and they also enjoy some OREOS!
