How the Program Works

Children (0 to 11)

  1. For every 10 books that a participant reads, they will receive a small prize and a raffle ticket for the grand prize.
  2. As participants bring in their completed Summer Reading Program trifold, staff will “stamp” their paper when they have been given a prize and a ticket.
  3. Parents and/or caregivers MUST initial by their child’s completed number of books in order for them to receive their prize and ticket.

Teens (12 to 18) & Adults (19+)

  1. For every 5 books that a participant reads, they get a chance to win their appropriate grand prize.
  2. Participants will fill out the form with their name, phone number, and the names of the books that they’ve read and/or listened to.
  3. Once that information is complete, the participant can drop it in the appropriate grand prize bucket!
