For those of you who signed up kids (0-18) for our Summer Reading program, don't forget to send in your entry form for the Dive Into Saving for College program. Three winners from each congressional district in Oregon will be chosen to win $1000 each to use towards the child's College Savings Plan. We have plenty of entry forms at the library and you can see more of the rules here.
If you've read The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, you may have dreamed, as I did, I living in a museum and exploring after hours. Well, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is looking for just that: a grown up who will live in the museum for a month, write about their experiences and do some other very cool stuff. Sounds like fun? Check out the official speak here.
On a more local note, Oregon has introduced its own Reader's Choice Award for kids and teens, called ORCA and they desperately need a logo. Grand prize is $200 gift certificate to Powell's (and the winning design would be the new logo). Oregon residents aged 8-18 can send in their entries by August 13, 2010. Find out more on their webpage.
