McDowell County Public Library


We are working very hard to provide a fantastic summer reading adventure  this year.

How it Works:
Read and keep track of the amount of time you spend reading on the provided reading log. One raffle ticket will be entered into the drawing for every 8 hours spent reading (there are 3 raffle tickets per page).

Completed reading logs must be turned in to either Marion or Old Fort Branch by 5:30 p.m. on August 07, 2020. You do not need to be present to win.

This year our Summer Reading Program will be a little different. To keep everyone safe Miss Lori has created programs to go. These crafts are free to all rising 6th graders and up. Crafts will be available at both branches. These crafts will count towards 1 hours on your reading logs. To be eligible to win prizes teens must complete one raffle ticket. Take and Make Crafts will be available every Tuesday morning at both branches. There are only a certain number of take and makes available and they are put out at 10:00 a.m at both branches every Tuesday.Reading logs will also be available at each branch.

Grand Prize: $50.00 gift card

Second Place: Basket of books

Some lucky teens will also win prizes when they pick up a Take and Make craft.

Who can participate?

The Teen program is for rising 6th graders and up.
