Book in a Jar

Pick up the jar at the Reference Desk and look closely.  Try to find snippets, words, or phrases from the remains of what was once a book.  Can you guess the title?  Write your name, contact information, and best guess on a sheet of paper.  Drop it in the Teen Summer Reading Can at the Reference Desk to enter a drawing for a $15 Hot Topic gift card!

Book Bingo

Pick up your BINGO sheet at the Reference Desk and start reading!  You have many options to win BINGO as long as you complete (read) five books of your choice in a row --- across, down, or diagonally.  Place your BINGO sheet in the Teen Reading Can to enter a drawing.  You might win a $10 Google Play gift card and the box set of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan.

Build a Little Free Library

Little Free Libraries are small, waterproof houses for free books, and are usually found in a community's park or neighborhood.  If you see a book you'd like to read, take it. When you're done, put it back, or donate a new one!  It's a simple approach to a book exchange, and helps to make our world a little brighter.  If you're looking for a positive way to get involved in your community then join us as we build our own Little Free Library.
