Prizes for 800 Minutes
Starting August 1, during our curbside and browsing hours we will have 800 minute prizes available for pick up! We ask that you wait until your child reaches the 800 minute mark in order to pickup their prizes all at one time. Make sure you’ve logged all their minutes on beanstack!
Prize bags are split into two age groups 0-12 and 13-18. We have a limited number of teen specific prize bags so please make sure you take a bag from your child’s age group. All prizes will include a Roll R Way pass, Isaac’s coupon, Longhorn Steakhouse coupon, Chik fil a free ice cream card, York Revolution ticket for the 2021 season, stickers and more!
While you’re here, we ask that you fill out a form with your child’s name, age, phone number, and which raffles they’d like to enter! Even if you are not interested in raffle prizes you must fill out this slip and return it to the labeled jar so we know your child received their prize!
One of our favorite prizes to give out every year is a book! Unfortunately this year with our changing situation we won’t be able to do that right away. Instead, each prize bag will include a coupon for a free book to be redeemed at the library once we’re able to expand our services. We will keep you updated on our website and Facebook page.
Prizes for GoYork!
Prizes for GoYork aren’t quite ready yet! We’ll let you know when they are! Keep an eye on our Facebook page.
Call or email the library if you are a Scout and earned a patch! We’ll add your patch to a prize bag, write your name on it, and have it ready for you to pick up at the desk during browsing hours. If it’s during our curbside hours, call us when you’re here and we’ll bring it out to your car!
Big Prize Raffles
Instead of placing individual tickets in different bins like last year, we will include a form with your prize bag. Before you leave the library, fill out the form, and return it to the labeled jar.
