Sign up for the summer reading challenge to get a "backstage pass."  On the inside of the pass, write down what you read for 7 days. 

Return the pass to the library and you will get to choose a small prize and be entered in the grand prize raffle. You'll also get an invitation to the secret backstage experience event at the end of the summer.

What's happening at this event? It's a secret!  We can tell you that it will be a fantastic musical experience where we will honor everyone who completed at least one backstage pass this summer.
