BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Our staff loved these incentives when we were younger, and now as parents — and an increasingly acceptable menu at McDonald’s — it seems the love can continue. Local McDonald’s are encouraging kids to use their local libraries, and will provide coupons for extremely good deals to those who show a library card.

Young readers are invited to discover the fun that their local libraries have to offer with the Twentieth Annual McDonald’s Reading Challenge, marking National Library Card Sign Up month this September.
With support from participating libraries in Palm Beach and Treasure Coast counties, the McDonald’s Reading Challenge encourages children in grades K-5 to sign up for a library card or show a valid library card to receive coupons for McDonald’s menu items, while supplies last, and to enter a library prize drawing. Over 10,000 children throughout Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast participated in the McDonald’s Reading Challenge program last year.
“Our patrons love the McDonald’s Reading Challenge. The children start asking about it at the beginning of the summer and look forward to a visit by Ronald McDonald® who gets them excited about reading and participating in the Challenge. For 20 years, children in Palm Beach County have been participating in McDonald’s Reading Challenge and “lovin’ it!”, said Cilla Jacobson, Youth Services Coordinator for the Palm Beach County Library System.
