You will either be contacted by the teen librarian via phone or email if you are a winner!

Adults will win 1 virtual drawing ticket for each 300 points they earn, up to 5 tickets at 1500 points. At the end of the summer, the Adult Librarian will draw 4 distinct winners. The first winner drawn will have their pick of the prizes. The second winner will be able to pick from the remaining prizes, and so forth.
