Collinsville Library Summer Reading Program Is In Full SPASH !

We are smoking the other TCCL Libraries percentage wise with our children and teen registrations. The program is in its 5th week and we have 240 teens and 1,179 children registered. This means our children and teens are active participants in a program that will not only reward them with a coupon book full of free food and activities as well as fantastic prizes they are eligible to win, but they are also retaining and improving their reading skills.

The Collinsville Library is in a competition with all the other TCCL libraries to have the highest percentage of completions by July 31, 2010. Of course, Collinsville would like to win again. We won this competition last year.

A fun part of completing the program is that our teens and children have a chance to win great prizes along with all the other TCCL teens and children. We want you to be right in there with all the others to win some great prizes in August. Both groups will have earned the chance to enter a special drawing to win prizes if they complete the reading program..

What you can win if you complete the Teen Summer Reading Program: a Wii gaming system, an Intendo DSi, an Apple 16GB iPod touch, a Portable DVD player, a Flip Video camcorder, $25 or $50 Barnes and Noble gift cards, $25 or $50 Borders gift cards, $100 Old Navy gift card, $100 Best Buy gift card, or a $100 Target gift card.

What you can win if you complete the Children’s Summer Reading Program: Bicycles with helmets, Fishing trip with KOTV Channel 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot with fishing gear, subscription for a family of four to the Imagination Series, Family Membership to Tulsa Zoo, Family Membership to Tulsa Air and Space Museum, Family membership to Philbrook Museum, Family membership to Gilcrease Museum, Family four pack of tickets to Oklahoma Aquarium , and 2011 season tickets to The Tulsa Shock.

So as we go into the last month of our program let’s finish reading all of your books, attend lots of fun programs, spend time at the CV Library, and complete the Summer Reading Program in grand style.

If you have questions call your library at 596-2840. See you soon. Susan Babbitt.
