Register at the Circulation Desk to claim your entry prize. Then, over the summer as you read books and magazines, ask a librarian for an entry form to enter the July & August drawings. Put your name & phone number on the entry form and drop it in the box. Our July prize is a Friends of the Library tote bag. The grand prize drawing for the Kindle Fire will be held in August.
One entry form per item read -- audiobooks & e-books count, too. The more you read, the more times you can enter!
