How to Enter to Win Prizes for Reading This Summer!


Most of our prizes – but not all


Register for our Summer Reading Program and enter to win a whole mess of prizes! There are two categories of prizes you can enter to win:

  1. Bi-weekly raffles, or
  2. Grand prizes.

Bi-weekly raffles are easy, with lots of prizes available, and only reading is required: one book read = one raffle ticket. Deposit your ticket in whichever prize bucket you like, and that’s it. You can enter as often as you like.

There are three bi-weekly raffles this summer, and the cycles are:

  • Cycle 1: Sunday, June 25 – Saturday, July 8
  • Cycle 2: Sunday, July 9 – Saturday, July 22
  • Cycle 3: Sunday, July 23 – Sunday, August 6

Grand Prizes are a little more involved. All grand prizes are categorized as missions, require a completion of certain tasks, which may include reading for a certain number of hours, reading from a specific book list, and/or helping out in your community. Once you’ve completed the tasks for a specific mission, you’re automatically entered into the grand prize drawing.

Below is a list of prizes you can enter to win. All prizes will be displayed in our foyer display case in the library beginning July 3.
