Each participant will write the books they’ve read in to our new Summer Reading Log-In Binder.  This binder will be located at our new Log-In station in the Adult Services Department.      
We have a new computerized raffle system that will randomly pick the winners. 
The weekly activities can be picked up during the first week when you sign up.  For each completed activity, you’ll be entered into this new system for a chance to win a prize in our weekly activity drawing.

Our End of Summer Reading Pizza Party will be on Wednesday, July 25th at 6:00pm.
