2018 Teen Summer Reading Program

2018 Teen Summer Challenge - Scratch Off Tickets

During the East Lansing Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, teens entering grades 7-12 may request ONE (1) scratch ticket per day when you borrow materials.

Scratch off the sticker: you’ll receive your prize immediately! Prizes include gift cards to local businesses, PopSockets, mini Pusheen plushies, and more.

If you get a losing ticket, don’t despair! Every losing ticket serves as an entry for the GRAND PRIZE RAFFLE: the World's Largest Gummy Bear OR a $50 Amazon gift card. Simply fill in your contact information and return the ticket to front desk.  Grand prize winners will be contacted at the end of the summer.
