Readers can earn great prizes this summer for time spent reading at the Lisle Free Library! This year’s Reader’s Reward Program is open to all children under the age of 18 and will run from Wednesday, July 18th through Wednesday, August 29th.
To participate readers simply keep a log of the number of minutes they have read using either a paper log (Download here: Reading Log) or by using the ReaderZone® app (Instructions here: Reader Zone Instructions) and earn amazing prizes! (Here’s a tip: It also counts when someone reads to them! It might be a teacher, parent, your cousin, grandparent, or even babysitter. As long as an adult initials – it counts!)
This year’s prizes include a toy from the Treasure Chest for every 50 minutes and $5 Book Order Credit toward a New Book for every 250 minutes. Also readers earn prizes for reaching certain reading levels. For reading 750 minutes, they earn (1) Free Slice of Pizza @ Dominic’s Pizza. For 1,000 minutes, (1) Free Ice Cream Cone @ The Scoop in Whitney Point, NY. For 1,500 minutes, (1) Pass to the Discovery Center. And for 2,000 minutes, (1) $25 Barnes & Noble Gift Card! All prizes must be validated by and collected from the Lisle Free Library.
Program participants can enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card by making a “Bingo” on their Bingo Reading Card (Download here: BINGO Sheet). Each “bingo” gives participants one entry into the drawing, which will be held at the 2nd Annual Back to School Pool Party at the Lisle Community Pool on Wednesday, August 29th.
Also readers can earn minutes every Monday from 11:30 – noon during Storytime starting July 23rd!
