Summer Reading Update – August

Me: There are only two weeks left in August.

Everyone reading this right now:

It’s true though. Which means there are only two more weeks to get in your slips for teen summer reading as well! If you haven’t seen the amazing prizes we have for the August raffle, check out the last blog post. Currently, Team Moon is still in the lead, but is only about 10 points ahead of both Team Sun and Star which are tied, so I’m excited to see which team will pull through! The winning team will get a special display in the library featuring books they’ve read throughout the summer.

If you’re still planning on entering the Sci-Fi Short Story Contest, submissions are due by this Friday (the 23rd). You can drop your submission in the summer reading raffle box, or just e-mail them to cdifazio@monroetpl.org.

And last, and most importantly: pizza. We’re celebrating the end of summer with a pizza party for teens, next Tuesday (the 27th) at 6pm. Give us a call at 856-629-1212 ext. 206 to sign up.

August Raffle!

July is over and August is here! Congratulations to Ava L. who was the winner of July’s raffle basket.

We have one month left of summer reading and this month’s raffle basket is a good one! The Friends of the Library have generously donated a Kindle Fire to include in the prizes. In addition, we’ve got an Amazon gift card, a sketchpad/journal, comics & manga, a kitty hat, and some Asian snacks and treats!

Team Updates: Team Moon has finally pulled ahead of Team Sun and is currently in the lead. All three teams are still very close, and a lot can change in a month so make sure to keep participating!

As always, it’s never too late to sign up. Good luck and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Summer Reading Update – July

We’ve got about a week and a half left in July so I just wanted to share an update with you all. First of all, I want to say that I am really impressed with everyone’s participation, we’ve had over 150 entries this year so far! Currently, Team Sun is still in the lead, but Team Moon and Team Star have made massive comebacks in July and the scores are actually incredibly close!

July’s raffle winner will be contacted on August 1st so make sure to get your tickets in before next Thursday! Don’t worry if you’ve been busy this month, your previous entries will carry over.

For those who are hearing about this for the first time, it’s never too late to sign up! Just click here to register online, or stop by the reference desk the next time you’re in the library.

Thanks so much to everyone reading and attending programs this summer! Keep it up!

July Raffle!

First of all, congratulations to Marissa J. who was the winner of our June raffle basket!

Now that July has officially begun, a new raffle basket is up for grabs! This month we’ve got a Gamestop gift card, manga, comics, Asian snacks and treats, a Harry Potter keychain, and a little Niffler plush!

Teams update: Team Sun is killing it right now, but there’s still plenty of time before the end of the summer so that can definitely change. You can still sign up if haven’t yet. For those who already have, keep participating! Don’t forget, every book you read, program you attend, and museum you visit counts as an entry into the raffle. Good luck and have fun!
