Pollard Teens Summer Fun @ The Pollard Library
Reading For Fun and Profit

Whether you are reading a “just for fun book,” a school assignment book, a magazine, or a comic book, come to the Pollard Library this summer and cash in on our weekly prizes.
Here’s how it works:

  • Each week, come to the Children’s Reference desk and pick up a weekly Summer Fun Punch Card.
  • Each day that you read, even a little bit, check off a box on your Summer Fun Punch Card.
  • Read at least 6 days out of seven and turn your punch card in for a prize as well as to enter our weekly raffle.

We’ll be giving away some great prizes this summer including—coupons for free food at local stores and restaurants in Lowell,  Spinners prize package, games, and, if you turn in a punch card at least 4 times over our six weeks of summer fun, you will earn a chance to win a brand new Razor Scooter.
