The adult and teen reading challenges have the same rules, but different prizes.


How it works:

2. Come into the library and fill out a ticket with your name, contact info, and the title of the book.

3. Place the ticket into a drawing for 1 of 4 great prizes.

4. Participants can enter two tickets per week. The prize drawings will be held on August 6th at 5:45pm before the Avengers movie showing in the community room. Participants do not need to be present to win.
