Reading Takes You Everywhere

Thank you to everyone who made this year's
summer reading program a success!

How it works...

Register at the Main Library or the Branch Library --
families can register on one family registration
sheet -- and everyone who registers gets a
registration prize and brochure to track your
reading. The goal for ages 12-18 is to complete
15 hours of reading. Fill in or stamp a box in your
brochure for each hour you read.

Bring your brochure to the Main or Branch library
starting June 4 to have your brochure checked
and receive a prize and reading tickets. Receive a
prize and reading tickets every time you get your
brochure checked. Reading tickets can be used
for a chance to win awesome prizes! (Keep track
of your tickets! No replacements for lost tickets.)
your brochure to a librarian and receive a prize
when you reach your goal! Prizes available
June 4 through July 14.

1 box = 1 reading ticket

At the end of the summer, we'll draw winners for the
prizes. The more you read, the more chances you
have to win!

Read whatever you want including books, ebooks,
audiobooks, magazines, manga, and graphic

Earning extra reading tickets...

Earn an extra reading ticket every time you attend
a library program! Extra tickets can also be earned
by reading something from a new genre; reading
a book about a place you've never visited; learning
three words in another language; and donating an
item to ER Abroad's medical mission (you'll find
their donation wish list on the back of your brochure).
