This Summer, we want you to have FUN! We also want you to keep reading! So, we've combined the two so that you can read and have fun all summer long. Not only can you have fun, but you could win some great prizes. There will be weekly drawings for great gift certificates - click on the Weekly Prizes button for the list of prizes - and if you complete all of the badges, your name will be placed in the final drawing for an iPad mini! (Winner will be notified on Monday, August 12th.) Over the course of the Summer Reading Program, we will have fun weekly events and movies! There will also be a Short Story Writing Contest and a Photography Contest for even more chances to win great prizes. So get out there and earn those badges. And remember . . . There’s a Universe of Stories out there!
