To be eligible for a raffle ticket, 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. If you would like to be entered in a raffle for both prizes, you will need to read 800 minutes for each challenge, for a total of 1600 minutes. 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.
Our kids program will focus on summer learning. What’s Summer Learning? It’s a way for you and your family to Read, Discover and Create your way through the summer! Read a book, a magazine, the back of the cereal box: reading opportunities are all around you. Discover through hands-on exploration by coming to a library program or visit to a park. Create by designing, drawing, writing about and building sea creatures and their homes. There are “Oceans of Possibilities” to what you can do.
To complete the program you need to Read 800 minutes, complete 4 Discover activities and 4 Create activities. At the halfway point of the program, after you have Read 400 minutes, done 2 Discover activities and 2 Create activities, you can stop by the library for a prize. Once you complete the program you will get a prize, a free book to keep, and a raffle ticket for one of the two prize baskets.
Our Summer Kick Off is on June 4th from 9am to 4pm. There will be a bounce house, free snow cones and visits from Elephant and Piggie, two of our favorite book characters!
