Submissions will be accepted June 18–July 17.  Download your entry form  below or pick up a paper copy at the library. All entries must be submitted by July 17.

Vote at the library for your favorite pet between July 19 – August 21. Winners will be announced August 26.

Read & Bead Bingo
June 18 – August 21

This year adults can join in the summer reading fun!  Complete a Bingo row and earn beads to create a personalized beaded bookmark. Complete your entire card for a chance to win Colls Cash!  

Choose which way to play. Pick up your Tails and Tales Bingo Board, bookmark base, and your first bead at the library OR register online through READsquared.  Fill in the squares as you read through the summer. After you complete one row, bring your Bingo Board to the library to choose your beads.  READsquared users will be contacted by the library to arrange bead pick up. 

Drop off your completed Bingo cards by August 28.  Colls Cash drawing winners will be announced in early September.
