All about the raffle and prizes:
  • THE BUTTON RAFFLE- Once you hit a certain point benchmark (see chart below) your name will be entered in the weekly button raffle. If you don't win a button the week you hit the point benchmark, your name will be reentered in the weekly raffles until you win a button. Once you win, you need to earn more points until your name is put in again. The winners will choose what button they want from options provided and then pick it up at the library.

    NOTE: There will be 3 button winners per week. Each participant can win buttons no more than 3 times over the summer.


  • THE NEW BOOK RAFFLE - Once you hit a certain point benchmark (see chart below) your name will be entered in the new book raffle. If you don't win the book raffle the week you hit the point benchmark, your name will be reentered in the weekly raffles until you win a book. Once you win, you need to earn more points until your name is put in again. The winners will choose their book from options provided and then pick it up at the library.

    NOTE: Each participant can win no more than 3 books over the summer.


  • THE GRAND PRIZE RAFFLE - The amount of times your name ends up in this raffle will depend on how many points you've earned throughout the summer (see chart below). There will be only 1 winner of the grand prize at the end of the summer.
