Summer is almost here! Northern Tier Regional Library invites all children from birth to 18 to participate in our Summer Reading Club 2015: Every Hero Has a Story and Unmask! Join us for programs and prizes all summer long. This year we will be trying a new way to log your books. Sign up for the Summer Reading Club and receive a book bag and a folder to collect stamps. You’ll be able to collect up to 50 stamps all summer long and exchange them for awesome prizes at our Summer Reading Club Bash.
Rules for all ages:
- One stamp per book read.
- One stamp per program attended.
- Collect up to 6 stamps for books per visit (you can earn an extra one for a program attended on the same day)
- You can earn up to 50 stamps.
We can’t wait for you to start collecting and completing all 50 stamps. In the meantime we’ll also have prizes and other raffles that will keep you occupied… oh and lots of books, movies and games too!
