How It Works

Sign up for Libraries Rock on or after June 22, 2018. Come to the Young Adult desk, decide on a reasonable reading goal (Hint: a lot of schools are requiring students to read at least 2 books this summer; this might be a good goal for reluctant readers. For more enthusiastic readers, try to challenge yourself without being unrealistic!), and start your Build a Better World log! Put your name and goal on the outside cover, and use the inside to keep track of all the points you earn this summer. Leave your log here at the library so it doesn’t get lost. Come back often to record your reading, watching, writing, and point earning! 

100 Points = 1 Raffle Ticket

Every time you earn 100 points, see Rosie to fill out a raffle ticket and choose which prize you want to try to win!
