Reading Racing Bracket is to be filled out daily after completing your reading goal. We encourage you to go above and beyond that goal if possible. You never know, it might pay off in the long runJ. Every week you will bring in your goal sheet so we can fill out your bracket at the library before/after each program activity. Small prizes can be earned every week and then after the monthly Racing Brackett is finished and your goals have made you reach the FINISH LINE, you are able to pick out a larger prize.


We are still working on all the cool prizes so you will have to make sure you meet your goals that way you can see all the cool little prizes you have a chance to get your hard earned hands on
