Want to see Happy Feet? Nah, I'll wait for the book.

BERLIN

The town of Berlin has come up with a novel idea for how to get kids to read more. Send them to the movies!

Starting Tuesday, students in grades K-12 who check out reading material from the Berlin Public Library will have their name entered in a weekly drawing.

One movie ticket to Regal Cinemas will be awarded to the raffle winner at the library each Saturday at 1 p.m. The drawings, sponsored jointly by the library and the Berlin Recreation Department, will continue through at least Feb. 3.

For more information, call the library at 978-838-2812.
