Summer Reading

Summer Reading Rules

This program is for up to age 14.

 

Pick up a  Reading Log from the library. Then color or cross out a star for each hour that you read.

There are rows of 5 stars. Each star equals 1 hour of reading or being read to.

 

First 3 completed rows = 1 entry toward Grand Prize drawing for a $100 Visa gift card

 

Each completed row = 1 entry toward an Experience Prize drawing

 

You only have to read (or be read to) a total of 15 hours to complete the program for a chance at the grand prize, but you can go for more chances for experience prizes.

 

You must have your log to get your prize. 

Don’t forget to have a parent/adult initial your log.

You can only complete the program once.

 

EXPERIENCE PRIZE DRAWINGS:

When you have completed 5 hours of reading you can enter your name into a chance drawing for the experience prize of your choice. The more you read, the more chances you get to win experience prizes.

 

The program ends on Friday, August 7 at 5 p.m.

 

And for the teens and adults in our group...
