"Extra, Extra, Read All About It!"

Having been asked, "What's the Extra Challenge," I feel encouraged to oblige...
The EXTRA CHALLENGE is my gift to you--or, at the very least, the fulfillment of popular Teen Group request...
An additional teen reading raffle, the prizes awarded (gift cards of various denominations) to only 3 the most ardent of readers...
The requirements as determined by yours' truly, & you can pick up the booklet at the Children's Desk starting Monday June 23. And, and answer to anticipated questions, the rules are simple...
You'll recieve a ticket for each completed entry (or challenge) after it's completion is "certified" by one of your friendly local librarians. Complete as many as you wish (there are 10 total) and in any order that tickles your fancy, then plop your ticket into the EXTRA CHALLENGE raffle box.
It's easy beans!!!
And, yes, you can participate in both raffles, but we'' be periodically checking those tickets, so no doubling dipping titles!
You wanted a challenge?
Well, I expect ya to be reading then--& enjoying it to boot!
Books are good. :)
Any questions, ask away. You know where to find us! :)
See ya tomorrow @ 2:30 for our latest afternoon of Open Gaming fun!

Good luck, Lauren! I learned a bit more about Sound this week, and I must confess, I'm impressed! Lots of work, but very, very cool!:)

As for Open Gaming, no worries--all is forgiven (we did miss you though!). I will, howeve, be rather sad should you miss July's Henna program and/or August's "Breaking Dawn" blowout!

Re: Extra Challenge

I suppose if it's a really BIG LONG book, I can't fault you for two entries, but it doesn't seem quite so challenging otherwise. :)

How about this, we can chat about it next Wed @ our Teen Group Meeting? Maybe you can guilt me into it...(or maybe not!) I'll post more info about that on the blog soon.

library lady said...
