Summer Reading for those of
you in grades

5 through 12.

Here's how it works:

Read each week, from
June 20  – July 29. You can read a book or a magazine.  When you’re done reading, pick up a form at the library and fill it out.  Honest, it will only take 30 seconds. Leave the form at the Circulation Desk and get a weekly give-away: a coupon for a Subway sandwich, a coupon for a free game of bowling at Bradley Bowl, a flying disk, a puzzle ball and more. Once we have your form, you become eligible for the weekly
drawing on Friday of that week.


Every Friday, starting June 24 through July 29, you’ll have a chance to win an exciting prize.

Remember: if you don’t fill out
a raffle ticket each week
beginning June 20—July 29th,
you can’t win!


Drawings will be held Friday mornings
at 11:30 a.m. starting on June 24.

reading required for
 school can be counted
