Prizes for ALL Ages!

There is indeed something for everyone... children aged 0-12, teens aged 13-18, & adults ages 19 & up!

How do you win these prizes?
How else... by reading!

That's right kids and adults are encouraged to keep reading through the summer. Then to win a prize just fill out the appropriate entry form (or reading log) and turn it in.

Children can have immediate gratification by choosing to get a token for a vending machine full of toys or they can choose to get "Creative Cash" and save up for bigger prizes on display on a wall in the Children's Wing.

Teens can also choose a token or Creative Cash but they can also choose an entry ticket for bigger prizes donated from local merchants and friends of the library (including food, books, beauty products, piano and guitar lessons, a $50 mall gift certificate and MORE). Each type of prize has its own entry bag and teens can try for any or all of the prizes.

Adults can enter by just reading one book - although there will be a drawing each week for one of the many prizes donated by local merchants. So reading more than one book will give adults a bigger chance of winning. Also there will be a Grand Prize drawing of all the adult entries turned in throughout the summer on August 24. The Prize Package includes a $50 Gift Certificate towards a stay at the Twin Turrets Bed & Breakfast, a $50 Gift Certificate for Joseph's Styling Salon, a $30 Gift Card from Red Hills Tavern, and a beautiful handblown glass Vase from Taylor Backes.

The only requirements for these prize drawings is that the official entry forms must be completely filled out, the books that are being listed must not have been read by the entrant ever before and the entrant must report on the books they've read. (see the official rules available at the library for children and teens)

Enter soon and enter often! GOOD LUCK!
