May 'Caught You Reading' Contest


May is 'Get Caught Reading' month, so pick up a book and get to it!  You can read paper books or digital books, newspapers, magazines, graphic novels, poetry, short stories…


If you 'Get Caught Reading', you will be entered in a drawing for cool prizes!  There are three ways you can win:


1.  Read in the library so a library staff member can see you reading and enters your name in the drawing.


2.  A teacher or other school staff member sees you reading and gives you a ‘Caught You Reading’ ticket. You must turn in your ticket into the library before May 31st to enter the drawing for prizes.


3. Take a picture of someone reading or a selfie of you reading, then print it out and bring it to the library. Label your picture (5x7 or 4x4 size) with your First/Last Name, Advisory teacher and room number. Your name will be entered in the drawing. In addition, you can win free books and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.


So, remember to read, read, read, and you can win some fantastic prizes! 


Happy reading!
