Teen’s Challenge

Starting May 24, readers in grades 5 through high school are encouraged to pick up details and a punch card to earn chances in a drawing for prizes. Get double punches on your card by selecting a book with an animal in the title (like lemur or giraffe) or with the word “tail” or “tale.” 

Your punch cards will be safely stored at our front desk. Just tell us your name when you visit to participate. Completed cards will be your entry into the drawings.

Adult’s Challenge

Kilgore Memorial Library in York, who challenged Seward Memorial Library to a “Smackdown” for several summers in the past, has decided to challenge Seward readers again.

After winning in 2019, the special trophy has been on display in Seward, but the readers in York would like to see it move west. Who will read more on Highway 34? Don’t let the York readers win it. Starting June 5, adult readers are encouraged to pick up details and a punch card to join in the friendly cross-county competition. Get double punches on your card by selecting a book with an animal in the title (like lemur or giraffe) or with the word “tail” or “tale.” The total number of books read will be posted weekly so you can following the library’s standing in the challenge.

Adults are responsible for their punch card. Completed cards will be your entry into the drawings.
