Summer Library Program 2016
Get ready for Summer Library Program 2016!
June 6 - July 30
All Library Locations
Our mission is for your child to have FUN with your library this summer! We have included reading goals and activities that you are more than welcome to modify to best complement your child's interests and reading abilities.How It Works:
1. Sign up between June 6 and July 30. Get a weekly Tic Tac Toe sheet and have fun filling each one out!
2. Return a completed Tic Tac Toe sheet and get a bookmark and a ticket, and stamp your Reading Log.
3. When you get five tickets, you get a free book of your choice, plus a ticket to enter the Grand Prize drawing. Each additional Tic Tac Toe sheets you complete (up to 8) will get you one extra ticket for the Grand Prize drawing.
Grand Prize Drawings will be held at each location the week of August 1. See your local library for details.
