Reading Challenge

Complete the Reading Challenge and earn tickets for a chance to win bigger prizes--like books or toys!

  1. The reading levels are divided into 3 groups:
    *Read to
    *Beginning Reader
    *Chapter Book Reader
  2. Tell us your reading level at the circulation desk and we'll give you the first paper to complete.  Each paper will tell you your reading goals to earn tickets and win prizes.
  3. Turn in your sheet every 2 weeks to pick up your prize.  Also, pick up your new reading sheet.
  4. We will keep track of how many tickets you earn based on the information provided on your reading sheets.
