2020 Summer Reading Guidelines

 

 

Adult Program

 

Earn a ticket for weekly drawings for each book review you submit through EngagedPatrons. If you win, you will be notified and can choose a pickup time to get your prize(s)!
This year’s Grand Prize is a Kindle Fire & Echo bundle!

 
 

 

Teen Program

 

Earn a ticket for weekly drawings for each book review you submit through EngagedPatrons. If you win, you will be notified and can choose a pickup time to get your prize(s)!
This year’s Grand Prize is a Kindle Fire 7 & Fire TV stick bundle!

 
 

 

Tigers

 

Tiger readers will keep track of their reading hours by logging them virtually through EngagedPatrons. Because of the limitations this year, instead of getting a prize for every hour read, prizes will be bundled as follows:

 

  • 10 hours = prize pack
  •  

  • 20 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

  • 40 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

  • 60 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

    This year’s Super Reader prize will be a Kindle Fire HD 10!
    Tigers can read past 60 hours to receive more tickets in the Super Reader drawing. It is still every 20 hours for a ticket.

     
     

     

    Cubs

     

    We know the majority of participants in this group aren’t able to read yet. That means that Cubs can earn hours by being read to. Keep track of Cub reading hours by logging them virtually through EngagedPatrons. Because of the limitations this year, instead of getting a prize for every hour read, prizes will be bundled as follows:

     

  • 10 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

  • 20 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

  • 30 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

  • 40 hours = prize pack & ticket for super reader
  •  

    This year’s Super Reader prize will be a Kindle Fire HD 8!
    Cubs can read past 40 hours to receive more tickets in the Super Reader drawing. It is still every 10 hours for a ticket.

     
     

     
     

    Wednesday Programming

     

    Our Wednesday entertainment programming will be offered virtually this year. We will post a video on our Facebook page each Wednesday at 2:00 pm featuring one of the awesome performers we have lined up for you this year! You’ll see some familiar faces like CR Ryan and Indiana WILD, as well as some new acts!
     
     

    Frequently Asked Questions

     

    Q: Do I have to have a library card to sign up and participate?
     
    A: No! While we would love if you signed up for library membership, it is not a requirement to sign up for the Summer Reading Program

     
     

    Q: Do I have to read only library books?
     
    A: No. It would be especially tricky this year to make that a requirement. Read whatever books you have at your disposal, or use our curbside service to check out books from the library.

     
     

    Q: Do audio books count?
     
    A: Yes! Tigers and Cubs may record the hours they listen. Teens and Adults, just turn in a review as you would for a regular book.

     
     

    Q: Is there a deadline for registration?
     
    A: There is no registration deadline. You can start participating as late into the program as you want, but keep in mind, the longer you participate, the better your chances are of winning!

     
     

    If you have a question that isn’t answered here, please contact us! This year’s virtual program is a learning curve for everyone, and we will do our best to help you. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to make this year’s program as much fun as possible!
