The 2016 Summer Reading Program runs from Saturday, June 4 through Saturday, July 30.
You can read any book, magazine, comic book, or anything with words. If you have read it before you should re-read it during the contest dates to count for the program.
There are three reading levels. For each level read 500 pages or 500 minutes. Use the back of the log to keep track of your reading for your convenience. Get your log stamped to receive your prize for that level. Keep the log until you reach the Gold Level.
When you have finished the Gold Level you have finished the program and are invited to the Pizza Party on Thursday, August 4 at 6:00. Call to reserve your spot for the party.
Continue reading for entries in the grand prize drawings. For each additional 500 pages or 500 minutes beyond the three levels, fill out an extra reading slip (available at the Reference Desk) for an entry to win your choice of a $25 gift card.
All reading logs and extra reading slips must be turned in by Saturday, July 30 to receive prizes and be entered into the prize drawings.
