The Anne Arundel County Public Library is asking children to celebrate "Link Up for Library Week" by decorating their local libraries.

Between today and April 24, children should write their names and addresses, and the title and author of every book they read on colorful strips of paper, which are available at local libraries, or they can be made at home. Kids with an artistic bent can decorate the strips with a scene or character from the books.

The book strips must be dropped off at local library branches by April 24. They'll be made into paper chains, signifying the important link between children and books. The chains will decorate the libraries through the end of May. Last year young readers read nearly 50,000 books during the monthlong event, contributing enough strips to make a chain with a combined total length of nearly three miles.

Participants will receive bookmarks courtesy of McDonald's Corporation and will have a chance to win an activity book, free pizza at Pizza Hut, free bowling at Fair Lanes, a pass to the Arundel Olympic Swim Center or a round of miniature golf at the Severna Park Golf Center. And on top of it all, they'll have fun reading!

There's fun in listening to stories, too. On Saturday at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, storytellers Maria Broom, Linda Fang and Anita Sarin will spin tales from the cultures of Africa, China and India in an 11 a.m. presentation sponsored by Barbara Easter. Tickets for "Storytellers from Around the World" are $6.
