Summer Reading Program

On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!


2016 Summer Reading Program

How to Register
New format this year! It’s now easier than ever to participate. Just go to the Children’s Room at either the Main Library or Vauxhall Branch any time after June 15, 2016 and get your Registration Form. Once the form is filled-out and returned to library staff, you will get your BINGO card and a small prize.

How the program works
During the weeks of June 27th- August 15th complete the activities on your BINGO card. Come in to the library to report what you have completed. Each visit, see one of the Teen Volunteers and report on up to two (2) activities. Then you will pick one treat from the prize box after you report. You may report once per day. You will also record the number of books you read throughout the summer on the back of the BINGO Card.

Complete the BINGO card your way:

  1. You may complete 5 (five) activities in a row, straight up and down, across or diagonal. After getting BINGO and coming to the library for five visits, you will get a ticket to the Ice Cream Sundae Party on August 25, 2016.
  2. More ambitious readers can try for the entire outside of the card.
  3. For our SUPER READERS, complete the whole card! Children who compete the whole card will get a ticket to enter into the drawing to win the Grand Prize*!

*The Grand Prize is provided by the generosity of the Friends of the Union Public Library.

You can win an iPod Mini 2!!  

Drawing for the Grand Prize will take place at the Ice-Cream Party on August 25th, 2016 at the Main Building. Winner does not need to be present, but will be notified by phone or email.
