BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — McDonald’s is bringing back its “Reading Challenge” which encourages kids in grades K-5 to sign up for a library card — or bring a library card — to receive coupons for McDonald’s.
It’s underway in Palm Beach County:
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 over 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.
Throughout September, reading ambassador Ronald McDonald® will host story hours at the following libraries in Palm Beach county:
Palm Beach County Main Library Friday September 6 4:30 p.m.
Glades Road Branch Library, Boca Raton Thursday September 12 11:00 a.m.
