Meet Ms. Jamie:

Hello, everybody! My name is Jamie and I am the Children’s Librarian at Flower Library. I am from New York City, but have been living at Fort Drum for two years. I have a wonderful husband named Lorenzo and a mischievous dog named Balto (yes, he’s a husky!) who likes to cause trouble. I like to read, write, paint, and most importantly…eat! I would love to meet every single one of you so come visit me any time!

WHAT COUNTS: Books, e-books, audiobooks, newspapers, magazines, graphic novels, reading with an adult, having an adult read to you

This particular winter reading program is for ages 0-12. See Ms. Brittani for ages 13-18 and Ms. Amanda for 18+. 

1 hour of reading = 1 ticket 

Whatever you choose to read does not have to be from our library! Feel free to read materials from other libraries or other sources.

3 winners will be drawn. A person can only win 1 prize. If their tickets are drawn twice, another drawing will take place.

The program ends at 7:55pm on March 20th, 2023. Any entries made after that will not be counted.

Prize winners MUST pick up their prizes in person; mailing is not an option.

Prizes must be picked up within a week or another winner will be drawn.

– Read your favorite book, e-book, audiobook, newspaper, magazine, and/or graphic novel

– Track the number of hours you read on the log provided by Ms. Jamie

– At the end of the program, hand in your reading log to Ms. Jamie or the Main Circulation Desk to redeem your tickets

– When you get your tickets, write your FULL NAME and PHONE NUMBER on the back

– You will then put your tickets in the designated bowl, bucket, or hat (haven’t decided which yet!) for a chance to win a prize

– At the end of the program, 3 prize winners will be randomly drawn

– Prize winners will be announced on Facebook and contacted directly via phone

Don’t know where to start? No worries, we’ve all been there!

– Make a schedule to allow for set reading times. EX: dedicating one hour a night every night

– Try something new! Even if you don’t like it, it still counts towards your reading time so it’s still a win!

– Ask for recommendations from a parent, guardian, friend, or Ms. Jamie!

– Get creative for even more fun!

  • Read with friends
  • Read to your goldfish
  • Act out the scenes and dialogue as if you were the main character (or villain!)
