Earning prizes for reading has never been easier.  All ages can sign-up for the Summer Reading Program, which can be done at: any location, our kickoff event, or through Beanstack online (more info below).  Reading 20 minutes at a time moves you to the next stop, and four of the stops along the way will earn you prizes – that’s right four prizes just for reading!  You’ll also earn a grand prize entry if you finish the program.  There are different grand prizes for each age group, and in the past they’ve included various awesome prizes such as: gift baskets chock-full of goodies, bicycles, gift cards to Best Buy, and anime-themed mystery boxes – just to name a few!  Call any library location for any questions about the Summer Reading Program!
