This summer, when you read, create, learn, and play using one of Wallingford Public Library’s resources, you are eligible to enter into a drawing to win one of eight gift card prizes and one grand prize.

Beginning July 1, come into the Library to fill out an entry form, or fill out an entry form online. So if you’re on vacation, or just can’t get to the Library, you can still enter to win.

Tell us:

Choose one of the eight prize you’d like the chance to win. Enter multiple times throughout the summer - enter every time you read, create, learn, and play. The more you do, the more chances you’ll have to win a prize. Each time you enter, you can choose a different prize or you can enter multiple times to win the same prize.
