Kids of all ages can participate in an educational and fun program this spring by joining the 1882 Club, sponsored by the Clubhouse Reading Center. A free literacy outreach program offered by the University of Findlay, the Clubhouse “recruits” members for the 1882 Club during the fall and spring university semesters.
“The 1882 Club challenges students to read 1,882 minutes during the semester. That averages 627 minutes a month, or 20 minutes each day,” said Allison Baer, Ph.D., director of the Clubhouse. “Kids can do the reading at home and come to the Clubhouse with their reading logs to check-in three times during the semester.”
Students who register for the club will receive a record sheet, a pencil and a bookmark. Check-ins are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Mondays, Feb. 27, March 27 and April 24 at Clubhouse headquarters, 300 Davis Street on the University of Findlay campus. During check-in, participants post their minutes on the 1882 Derrick, talk about what they’ve read, receive a new record sheet and a “Thanks for reading” gift from the Clubhouse. At the April 24 meeting, there will be a celebration for all participants.
Registration for the 1882 Club is now underway, so students are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Visit www.findlay.edu/education/1882-Club to sign up online. For more information, contact Baer at firstname.lastname@example.org
