2012 Summer Reading Program Rules
Dream Big, Read!@Osceola Public Library
2012 Summer Reading Program
The reading program officially begins on June 4 and ends on July 16. Books counted toward prizes cannot be checked out prior to the beginning of the program.
Children from birth to those who have just completed Kindergarten will get to choose a book to keep upon completing a special “log” of books read. They may read the books to their parent/grandparent/guardian or may sit and listen while someone else reads to them depending on their abilities. Once ten titles are written on the log, bring it back to the library and they can select their free book. Three logs may be submitted per child through the duration of the reading program. A parent can fill out sheets for multiple children who sit and listen to one reading. Come in to the Children's Library to pick up your log on or after June 4.
Graduates of Grades 1 through 6:
These children are eligible for weekly prizes. The drawings are held each Monday for six weeks, so they can win up to six prizes.
There is a notebook in the children’s library for these kids to record their name and phone number for the weekly drawings. This sign-up notebook will be available starting May 29, but books eligible for the drawings must be checked out June 4 or later. They must be books checked out from the Osceola Library but cannot include comic, joke & riddle books, books with no words, encyclopedias (animal or sports or dinosaur encyclopedia for instance), or magazines. For each qualifying book that is read in its entirety, ask the librarian for a paper to fill out for the next drawing. We will notify the winners by phone.
Graduates of 7th through 12th Grades:
The prizes for these readers are a little more elaborate, but there is only one drawing at the end of the summer program on July 16. There is no need to sign up ahead of time. The same rules for book eligibility apply – only books checked out from the Osceola Library but no comic, joke & riddle books, books with no words, encyclopedias (animal or sports or dinosaur encyclopedia for instance), or magazines. For each book you read and return, ask the Children's Librarian for a paper to fill out for the drawing, write your first and last name and phone number on it, and it will be placed in the drawing bucket.
When an adult reads a book and returns it, they can enter their name in our adult drawing. They should put their name in once for every book read. The drawing will be July 16; 3 names will drawn for prizes. Each person whose name is drawn will win a free book certificate.
