Summer Reading is all about finding that delicate balance between expanding your horizons and letting you choose what you want to read. We know you’ve just spent an entire year (or several) with teachers telling you when and what to read.
We want to help you find new books that you will love, but stay within the confines of what interests you. Also, we have a bunch of prizes to give away, so we’re going to do that, too.
Here’s how it works:
1. Sign up here!
2. Pick up a Book-Tac-Toe form at the library, or download one here.
3. Read a book that relates in any way – we’re totally flexible – to one of the categories on the Book-Tac-Toe grid. If you need help choosing, take a look at some of our reading lists or come in and talk to a librarian for more personalized suggestions.
4. After you read a book, write the title on your Reading Log, or submit it online here. You’ll earn a raffle ticket for each book you finish, and another if you complete three categories in a row: Book-Tac-Toe! Turn in your reading log or online entries by August 14 at 2:00pm.
5. Come to our end-of-summer party on Monday, August 14 to pick up your prize, eat free Sol Food, and listen to live entertainment in the Outdoor Amphitheater. You don’t need to attend the party to win…you’ll just be sad you missed a good time. (Same goes for the party, you can come even if you haven’t done the Book-Tac-Toe challenge). Registration recommended. Click here to register.
Prizes include gift certificates to local restaurants (Grilly’s! Sol Food! Boo Koo!), iTunes gift cards, and more!
