Weekly prizes include slap bracelets, stuffed pirate octopi, bouncy balls & more!

Adult Summer Reading Program
Summer reading is not just for kids! The library will be having weekly raffles for adults for six weeks with various prizes. Entering is simple! Read a book, watch a movie, or attend any of our events, then write a sentence or two on our raffle ticket and drop it in the raffle jar next to the circulation desk. We will pull out a name at the beginning of each week! Check out the awesome prizes below.

Do audiobooks count? Movies? TV shows?
Yes. Yes. Yes. Absolutely! We love audiobooks. You can check them out in CD form or download them from Overdrive. The library is also more than just books, so feel free to count a watched movie or tv show. Don’t forget, you can also submit for attending an event as well.
Do I have to complete the book during the specified time?
You must finish the book during the six weeks, but if you started the book ahead of the six weeks that’s okay! Just don’t submit reports for books or films that you finished before the six-week period.
Can I wait and submit on the week I most want the prize?
Yes! If you’re aiming for a particular prize, you can submit your ticket for a book read, film watched, or event attended (within the six-week time frame) for that week. There is no guarantee that you will get it though, so you might want to just read a bunch and spread the love.
Can I win more than once?
No. Sorry! To spread the goodness, once you’ve won you can’t win again, but you are still eligible for the grand prize, so keep submitting tickets even after you’ve won to up your chance for the big one!
