How It Works
Read to complete your summer reading goal
of 15 hours before summer reading ends.
When you come to the library, find your book
chart and stamp how many hours you've read.
Bring your chart to the check out desk for the
librarian to mark and pick a prize from our
treasure box for every 2 1/2 hours you read!
Other Great Prizes...
Halfway Prize: Read for 7 1/2 hours and receive
a coupon for Ron's Donuts!
Goal Prize: Meet your goal of 15 hours read and
receive a Monical's Pizza coupon and new book!
PLUS, when you meet your goal you can attend
the Pool Party on July 14 from 7:00-8:30pm!
Weekly Drawings: Each week we will post a
different question. Answer the question and
enter your name in the weekly drawing.
Grand Prizes: At the end of summer reading
we will draw names from those who finished
their reading goal. If we choose your name,
you get to pick out a prize!
PLUS other special prizes you can learn about
when you sign up for summer reading!
