Our first guessing jar winner!

Congratulations to Mason, our very first Guessing Jar winner of 2013!

Summer Reading's off to an amazing start!  Kids are reading and logging their hours, and our programs and events are tons of fun!  And of course, we've had our first winner of our weekly guessing jar!

Our first week, kids were trying to estimate how many chocolate covered seeds were in a small gardening bucket.  There were 332 seeds, and Mason had the closest guess!  So he got to choose a prize, and he chose a water cannon which will be perfect for these hot July afternoons!

Don't worry, there will still be lots of chances for YOU to win a prize!  Each week we'll have something different to guess, and each week the child with the closest estimate will get to pick a prize.  This week we're trying to guess how many dinosaurs are in our jar.  You can guess every time you come to the library, so you  could increase your chances by visiting us more often!

And don't forget, if you haven't signed up for Summer Reading yet, there's still time!  Come in during any of our open hours and start logging your hours to help us donate plants and animals - and, if we read enough, a LLAMA! - to Heifer International!
