June 1 – August 5

Students entering grades 6-12 can win prizes for reading over the summer. Earn scratch-off tickets for the books you’ll be reading anyway—each ticket is a chance to win great prizes like gift cards to local businesses, KSU gear, free books, and more. Each ticket is also a Grand Prize entry that you can use to try to win one of our exciting Teen Grand Prizes. Past Grand Prizes include Rubber Ducks Tickets, Off the Wagon gift cards, and Midway Drive-In passes.

Here’s how it works: Registration for the program begins June 1 and you can begin collecting tickets on Saturday, June 3. Registration is required—just come to the Youth Services desk on the second floor to sign up.  You earn one ticket for every two books you read. The last day to get a scratch-off ticket and enter for the Grand Prize drawing is Saturday, August 5, 2017.
