From June 21 through August 20, adults who have read or listened to any books checked out at the Beaman Library can submit tickets (one for each book read) for gift certificates to local restaurants, donated by the Friends. Books requested from other libraries that are picked up at Beaman Library count as well. Just sign up at the main desk and start reading!
Starting June 21, Middle and High School students are invited to "Get in the Game and Read" with the Teen Summer Reading Program. Sign up at the Library and then start reading - books must be at your reading level, be ones you haven’t read before and be checked out at the Library to qualify for the program. You will get a scratch ticket for a small prize when you return the books you have read. All tickets (win or lose) will be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing held at the end of the summer. If you win "big," you can choose from a $50 B&N fift card! a FitBit Zip! or a $50 GameStop gift card! Good luck and happy reading!
Thursday, July 14 from 6:30-8 p.m.
