Summer Reading is here again and we are excited to introduce a new way to log your minutes. Reader Zone is an easy to use app that not only helps you keep track of your minutes, but it will also help you keep track of the books you have read. If apps are not your thing, you can access Reader Zone on computers at home or here at the library. We will also have a paper log available. More information about the app will be coming soon.

For both the Adult and Teen Summer Reading Challenge, you will be given a choice between two grand prizes. The two adult grand prizes are a $100 gift card to Selah Spa or two individual Newport Aquarium Tickets. The teen grand prizes are a $50 Steam Gift Card or a Pool Party at the YMCA.  

To be eligible for prizes, complete the Summer Reading Challenge by reading 800 minutes over 8 weeks  and your name will be entered into a drawing for the prize you have chosen. For every 10% of the challenge you’ve completed, teens and adults can come to the Main Circulation desk and spin the Wheel of Prizes! Prizes include items such as books, candy, pens, and drawstring bags.
