There are no minimum (or maximum) reading requirements. We just want you to have fun reading this summer!

What are the prizes?

This year we have decided to give adults what they really want-- gift certificates to local establishments.

  • Bi-weekly prizes ($25 gift certificates): Draw will be held bi-weekly and if you are a winner, you will be contacted to pick up your prize at the branch of your choice. Winner will be contacted using the phone and email address they provided when registering. If these do not work or if we do not receive a response within one week, another ballot will be drawn. Draw will include anyone who logged a book or program in the previous two weeks. Draw dates are: June 15 & 29, July 13 & 27, August 10 & 24.

  • Grand prizes (3 $250 gift cards): will be drawn at the end of the summer (September 3rd). Anyone who logged a book or program will be entered into the final draw. Winner will be contacted using the phone and email address they provided when registering. If these do not work or if we do not receive a response within one week, another ballot will be drawn. Grand prizes have been generously donated by the Brampton Real Estate Board (insert logo).

  • Book Bash prizes (2 $100 gift cards): anyone who enters the Book Bash (August 17) will be entered to win a door prize. If the winner is not present at the time of the draw, another ballot will be selected. The winner must attend the Book Bash and be present at the time of the draw to win.
