Registration starts June 23rd
Spark A Reaction!
Download the 'Spark A Reaction' booklist here!

How do I sign-up?

Visit the Service Desk, on the main floor of the library. When you register, you will be given a task card with various tasks for you to complete throughout the summer.

Who can participate?
Any students who live in Concord or Penacook and will be entering grades 7-12. To be eligible for prizes, you must have an active library card. You can sign up for a card, or update the one you already have, at any point during the program.

How do I win prizes?
You will earn one raffle ticket for each activity you complete on your task card, and for each extra book review that you submit (up to 10 extra). Check in at the Service Desk to receive your raffle tickets (and don’t forget to bring your task card!)

All raffle entries will go into a single pot, from which we’ll draw names weekly. You can enter into the raffle at any time throughout the program, but in order to qualify for the grand prize, you must submit your tickets by noon on Friday, August 15.

Reading Log
There is a reading log on the back of your task card, but whether or not you use it is entirely up to you. If you do decide to use the log, you can turn it in at the end of the program for an extra raffle ticket. We’d love to see what you’re reading!

Book Reviews
You can submit up to 10 book reviews for 10 extra raffle tickets!  These can be turned in at the Service Desk, or can be submitted online using this FORM.  If you submit a review online, a library staff member will add a ticket to the pot for you.

About Those Prizes...

The first 10 people to register for the program win an exclusive bonus prize! Think of it as an early bird special.  If you are an early bird, but don't yet have an active library card, you will have 3 days to update your card, so that you can claim your prize.

Each week, we’ll raffle off a gift certificate valued at $35. Destinations include local shops and restaurants. Any certificates that have not been picked up by August 15th at noon will be raffled off to another lucky teen.

By popular demand, we've added a special prize - whoever completes the most squares on their task card (e.g., whoever gets the most tickets!) gets $100 Downtown Dollars(In case of a tie, whoever completed the most squares FIRST will get the prize.)

And the Grand Prize…A Samsung Galaxy Tab! This prize will be drawn for on Saturday, August 15th at the Summer Reading Wrap Party. All raffle tickets must be received by noon of that day!

Please note: participates can only win one (1) of the weekly raffle drawings. Everyone is eligible for the grand prize, however, even if they have already won another prize.
