When you register, you will be given a reading log. For every hour that you read, write in the date the hour was completed and what you read.

For every 5 hours that you read (with a limit of 30 hours), you will be awarded 1 raffle slip for one of our great Grand Prizes! Participants can earn an additional raffle ticket for each special program that they attend (listed below).

Grand prizes can be viewed in the large display case across from the Circulation Desk, and you can choose which prize drawing you would like to enter your raffle slip in. Grand prize entry jars will be located at the Adult Reference Desk

Be sure to check in every couple of weeks at the Adult Reference Desk to have a librarian initial your log and update your progress for our records!

5 Hours = Wayne Public Library cup
