JUNE 5 — JULY 26

How do I sign up?

No registration is necessary. No library card is necessary. (However we do encourage you get one!) Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Entries must be received by Tuesday, July 24 at 5pm.


How do I participate?

Simply read (or listen to) any book, or attend a library program. For each book you finish you must come into the library and fill out a raffle ticket at the Customer Service Desk. For each program you attend at the library you can fill out another raffle ticket. All tickets will then be merged into a single pot and mixed. At the end of the Summer Reading Program, one winner will be drawn at random from the pot to win the Grand Prize! Additionally, one patron in attendance at each of our library programs will be selected at random to win a smaller door prize!

Basicaly, the more you read and the more you visit the library, the greater the odds in winning a prize!
