Bucks*" for every hour you read and for each
event you attend at the library! Register at the
Information Desk inside the Main Library.

Keep track of how much you read on our form,
then bring your form to collect "Book Bucks".
One hour equals one library buck. *Earn up to
100 hours a week in library bucks.

Collect extra library bucks for attending
library events, adding to our collaborative
art wall, attending our art classes, and
reading a "classic" book.
