Grand Prize Draw coming soon…

20160819_093840If you have a young reader at home, there are still a few days left to finish up the TD Summer Reading Club program. We’ll be drawing for the Grand Prize (the wonderful basket above), and smaller prizes late next week, so make sure to come in and get the last of your penguins, stickers, ballots, and more. After that, we’ll be finished for another year.

Who will win??

Spend Your Book Bucks!

Next week is one of the most popular and fun weeks at the library….it’s the first Book Bucks Spending Week! All of our teen readers have been madly reading and collecting in hopes of scoring something fun to purchase with their Book Bucks. We’re getting all of the items ready and cloaking them in secret behind a window cover, just to keep prying eyes from seeing too much too soon.

20160728_171432If you have teen readers who have some book bucks to spend, they can drop in any day next week that we’re open and spend, spend, spend! But don’t worry…if they can’t be here next week, they can drop in during the week of September 5 – 10 to make their purchases.  We think this is going to be a very popular event this year!

Adult Summer Reading is back!

adultWe’re doing it again….Adult Summer Reading!  Don’t just let the kids have fun this summer, sign up for Adult Summer Reading right now and maximize your chances of winning a great prize!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

All you have to do is come in and ask for the Adult Summer Reading Kit! Our amazing staffer Caroline has put together some fabulous–and fun–kits for adults. Open it up here, or take it home to find out what’s inside. (Hint….there is a guide to the reading program, and a SCRATCH card!)

DO I HAVE TO READ CERTAIN BOOKS?

Yes…and no. We want you to read what you like this summer, but we also want to challenge you to get out of your comfort zone. So, the summer reading cards inside your kit will get you to do just that. Give it a try. The more you experiment, the more chances you’ll have at winning. And who doesn’t like winning?

WHAT CAN I WIN?

We have SO many fun things, from special Library vouchers, to gift cards, to a crazy amazing prize (shh….it’s a secret).  With every book you read, you’ll have more chances at winning. Don’t stick with the same old-same old….try something new. You might be surprised!

Come in and pick up your kit today!  It’s going to be a wild summer!
