Welcome to 2022 – You Can Literally Become More Literate

Welcome to 2022 - You Can Literally Become More Literate

The library has all kinds of opportunities for you to sharpen your literacy skills in January.

If you’re interested in poetry, poetry slams, or public speaking, come to the library to find out about Poetry Out Loud — a poetry recitation competition sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts.

You must sign up for Sentinel’s competition by January 20, 2022. The winners will go on to compete at the district, state and national levels, where they can win scholarships and a free trip to Washington D.C.

Sentinel library’s 2nd-Quarter Reading Raffle will end January 20. Get those books finished and red dot tests taken, so your name will be entered for a fabulous prize. There’s no limit on how many times you can enter or how many books you can read!
