Reading Punch Card
Earn a pin by completing the punch card found in this bag.
Bring your card to the Youth Services desk once a week, between July 6th and July 30th to have your card punched. On the line next to the star, you can write the title of the book, a date and the amount of time you read that day, or a date and the number of pages you read that day.

When you bring your completed card in the last week of summer reading (Aug 2-6), you will receive your pin.
*All pins and prizes are only available while supplies last. We will check to see that you have completed the requirements to earn your pin when you come in. If you lose your lanyard, punch card, or pins we may not be able to supply you with another one.
