  1. Pick up a reading log at registration.
  2. Either read 6 books or attend 2 library programs and write them in the log.
  3. Turn in your finished reading log including name, address, and phone number at the main desk for a chance to win prizes, such as Raging Rivers passes, e-readers, Missouri Botanical Garden tickets, book bundles, and a month of free music lessons from Swing City.
  4. Grab a new log and start over!  The more you read or participate in programs, the more chances you have to win prizes.
KIDS
  1. Set a reading goal (how many hours--at least 10--you'll read over the summer) when you register.
  2. When you reach halfway to your goal you'll receive 2 tickets to a Gateway Grizzlies game.
