The More You Read, the Better Your Chances
We have a large collection of final prizes. We'll pull from the reading slips that are turned in throughout the entire summer program to decide the winners. The more you read, the better your chances of having a slip pulled and winning a cool prize, including LEGO kits, book series, dolls, action figures, comfy blankets, coffee mugs, plush toys, board game, and much more. All winners will be notified the weekend of August 19/20. The prize room will be open on Monday, August 21 at 9:00 am. All winners will choose which prize they want at the library.
