Kids that read 12 books between June 1 and July 31 will receive a backpack. Teenagers who read 8 books in the same time period will be entered into a drawing to win either a Kindle Fire or one of three prize packs.

Adults can get in on the reading fun too and also have a chance to win prizes. Adults who read 10 books between June 1 and July 31 will receive a summer reading book bag and be entered for a change to win an iPad.
