Summer Reading Prizes

Attention patrons: Due to social distancing, we will have limited prizes this year. Children who complete 30 days of reading will be given the following:

  • A limited-edition copy of our library story featuring our mascot, Freddy the Frog. This is a specialized book for children to commemorate this summer’s reading program written by our library staff. You have the option of taking one copy per child who completes the program, or one copy for your family as a whole. Our supplies are limited, so this prize will only be available to the first 150 patrons who complete this program.
  • A virtual ticket, available through Beanstack, to enter into the prize drawing of their choice. You must choose one of the following and select it on the app by 11:59PM on July 31 in order for your tickets to be entered into that drawing. The winners will be contacted by the email or phone number they entered when signing up for Beanstack. Please double-check that the information on your account is correct. If we are unable to contact the winner, their prize may be forfeit.
