Sign up online between June 1 and August 7 on Beanstack to be entered in a WEEKLY RAFFLE for a chance to win a gift card from one of our Summer Reading Sponsors. After registering, pick up a coupon card when you next visit the library—generously provided by our Library Champion partners! Prizes will be raffled off throughout the summer. You will receive a phone call or e-mail if you are one of our winners.
Choose Your Grand Prize!
After completing the program, you receive your choice of a Grand Prize T-shirt or Tote Bag, generously donated by Friends of Palatine Public Library. To request your completion prize, call 847-358-5881 and order your t-shirt size or request a tote. Staff will place the item on hold for Curbside Pickup through August 31 - while supplies last. T-shirt size selection is limited. No returns or exchanges.
Whole Household Prize
Each household of two or more members can earn a gift card when every member of the household completes the Summer Reading Program. Send a picture of the whole group to email@example.com wearing your Dig Deeper at Palatine Library t-shirts or holding your tote bag and receive one gift card. We’ll display your photo online. Claim your gift card by Monday, August 17.

No Kick-off Party
Although we enjoy celebrating the beginning of Summer Reading with all of you, this year we need to continue practicing social distancing by canceling our usual Kick-off Party. We strongly encourage all our participants to sign-up online by visiting palatinelibrary.beanstack.org/reader365, or log on with the Beanstack app.
