What's New in 2019?
The Robert R. Jones Public Library promotes reading and encourages creative exploration, active skill-building, critical thinking, while instilling a sense of community - all necessary to "Build a Daily Reading Habit," which is
our ultimate goal.
In keeping with this year's goal, the Robert R. Jones Library has put a fun, engaging twist on our reading program. This year's summer calendar of activities and events offer each attendee a chance to earn a badge for their
Earn Badges throughout the Summer!
The badge system is an educational approach to motivate children to learn with the goal of maximizing enjoyment and engagement through capturing the interest of learners and inspiring them to continue learning.
How Does my Learner Earn a Badge?
Every time a summer reading participant registers and attends a library hosted event, they will receive a badge rewarding them for their experience and commemorating what they learned. Please note: Unregistered attendees are not eligible to receive a badge. All events can be registered for in advance.
Why Offer Badges?
Young learners will feel good when they receive a badge. That feeling comes from a sense of achievement. In addition, this sense of achievement will motivate them further to work towards getting more badges and rewards. The badges are designed to give young learners public recognition. Learners will be able to collect and showcase their badges throughout the summer, earning public recognition and acknowledgement for their achievements helping engagement and motivation levels. Plus, earning badges personalizes the learning experience, making programs more relevant to individual learners while elevating their engagement.
