Goodbye Summer Reading

That’s it!  Summer Reading is officially over as of right….now.  Thanks to everyone who came to our teen summer events and signed up for the Summer Reading Program.  Now comes the fun part – declaring the winners of our grand prizes!  We’ve got to sort through thousands of prize tickets this week, so the grand finale isn’t until next Wednesday, July 28 at 7:00 p.m.  Teen prizes will be given out after the younger kids’ prizes.  Hope to see you there!

    How does the drawing really work, and do you have to be present to win? Also how many winners do you pick for the kids and teens each?

      Hi Jason,
      You don’t have to be present at the grand finale to win your prize; we’ll give you a call the next day if you won.

      The drawing works this way:
      We take every ticket and see what the person checked off, and put all the same prizes together, so there will be 8 different drawings. I wait until the tickets are counted and then decide how many gift cards to buy based on the number of people who went for that prize. So if there are twice as many tickets for Target than there are for Best Buy, then I’ll buy more Target cards. So there will be more winners for the prizes that more people wanted.

      I’ll end up with around 18 total prizes for the teen program, and there are 94 prizes for the kids’ program. They have more prizes because of the larger number of participants – around 475 younger kids participated, and around 100 teens participated in the young adult program.

      Hope to see you at the grand finale on Wednesday, July 28! The teen prizes will be given out around 7:30, right after the kids’ prizes.
