Read for Fun and Prizes

The more you read, the greater your chances of winning!

Every 30 minutes you spend reading or listening to a book earns you an entry into a prize drawing at the end of the challenge. eBooks, eAudiobooks, comic books, magazines, reading to your child – all reading counts. Search the Library’s catalog to find great titles – all you need is a library card. Don't have one? Sign up for an eCard to get immediate access to our online library.

You can earn more chances to win by attending any library program or tutoring session. Every event you attend gets you an additional entry into the prize drawing at the end of the challenge. Just make sure to add it to your online reading and activity log.
