New for Summer 2017: Stuck in the Middle Scratch Offs

Ages 10-13? You'll track your summer reading as you have in previous summers (10-12 with the Children's program, 13 with the Teen's), but this summer you'll have the chance to win Tween exclusive prizes! Between July 11 and August 22 for every two hours you read, you'll be able to claim a scratch off ticket from Ms. Meghin in the Children's Room. Each ticket you scratch will give you a small prize, a medium prize, or a "try again", which will count as one entry into our end of summer drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card! Summer reading registration starts Thursday, June 1, we hope to see you then!
