Program Information

Kids (3-8)

How to Earn Prizes:

For every 15 minutes of reading or activities you complete each day, color a symbol on your activity log. Once you have completed your reading log, return it to the library to get a treasure chest prize, and have your name entered into the grand prize drawing. 

 

At least 10 symbols on each activity log must be completed by reading, meaning each child must read at least 2.5 hours (150 min.) each month.  

 

There will be new reading logs for each month, June, July, & August. Children may participate once per month. If your child completes the reading log each month, they will get their name entered in the grand prize drawing once for each log they complete (up to three entries total).

 

Reading logs are available the Children's Department at Alfred Dickey Library, Stutsman County Library, and on the Bookmobile. Due to Covid-19, if you are not comfortable coming to the library to pick up an activity log, we would be happy to email you one instead, just call or email to request one. 

More information about the guidelines for this program will be included on the back of each activity log.
