Due to technical errors, our email server was down from August 6th - August 14th.  Any badges that were submitted online during that time frame did not submit properly and were therefore not counted.  To remedy this error, we are leaving the badges up until this Friday, August 18th.  Any badge you tried to submit last week can be re-submitted until this Friday and will be accepted for the final weekly drawing as well as the final drawing, assuming all 16 badges are completed. The drawing for the iPad will be on Monday, August 28th!  We apologize for any inconvenience in this matter and appreciate your participation in the Teen Summer Reading Program here at the Library.
