How Does This Work?

To participate in the 2019 Summer Reading Challenge, you have to be in 7th through 12th grade or age 12 to 18.

If you come to a YA program this summer or check out a book of any kind – fiction, non-fiction, audiobook, or graphic novel – you will receive a bookmark with a silver scratch off sticker. Each bookmark is a chance to instantly win a prize. You can only get one bookmark per day.

To claim your prize, you will need to fill in the information on your bookmark and hand it in on the second floor of the library, at the Reference Desk. Just ask for the YA Librarian.

What Can You Win?

When you scratch off your bookmark, it will say one of three things:

  1. Instant Win – Your ticket will tell you which one of our big prizes you have won! These prizes include:
  2. Prize Box – You can choose from a box that contains books, stickers, notebooks, candy, and other interesting small prizes.
  3. Better Luck Next Time – Don’t worry, even though you haven’t won a prize today you are entered into our grand prize to win a Kindle Fire!

Want a bonus chance to enter the raffle for a Kindle Fire?

Fill out one of our book recommendation sheets upstairs at the Reference Desk and you’ll get an extra entry. The prize will be drawn after all summer reading programs are completed, on August 16!

For more info, come in to talk to the YA Librarian, or email rwaitt@sailsinc.org.

This program starts on July 8th and ends August 16th!
