How to participate:
All you need to get started is to go online or sign up at any one of our libraries.
Beginning June 1st, track your reading online. For every five books or two and a half hours that you read, you have completed a level. Once a level is complete, visit any Library location to collect a prize. Kids can win the following prizes:
- Level 1 – Book
- Level 2 – Coupon for a free 3-Way courtesy of Gold Star Chili
- Level 3 – Sticky Superhero and Superhero Glider
- Level 4 – Glow-in-the-Dark Cup and an entry into the grand prize drawing
This year’s grand prizes are better than ever! Kids who reach Level 4 by June 30 will be entered to win 2 tickets to a Cincinnati Reds game! Kids who reach Level 4 by July 31 will be entered to win a $25 Gold Star Chili gift card or a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0!
After you have completed Level 4, keep reading for the chance to earn more entries into the grand prize drawing! For each additional five books or two and a half hours read, you will earn another entry.
You can print out this form to keep track of the number of books/minutes read.
Power Up for Summer Reading! On June 1 from 10am-6pm, children and their families are invited to stop by any Library location to decorate a superhero mask, while supplies last.
Then be sure to visit your local Library all summer to pick up books and attend some of our super programs!
