It’s Not To Late To Earn Prizes At The Library This Summer!

It’s easy! Children read anything and everything, and check off the days they spend time reading. When participants have read for 10 days, we will place a personalized bookplate in their honor in a new library book of their choice. After additional 10 days of reading, kids will receive a free book to keep and a Pawsox ticket for the August 14th game. Children can earn even more prizes for completing our Reading BINGO Card. At registration, kids will receive a coupon card with free admission to several local fun spots.
