Throughout the month of May, children and teens were given Book Bucks for every book they checked out. One book earned them one Book Buck.
They were encouraged to save their Book Bucks and on Friday, May 29th, during our weekly Fun Friday program, we had an auction where kids and teens could bid on lots that included books, MREs, candy, toys, and other items.
All day on Saturday, May 30th, children and teens could purchase items from the Marketplace with their Book Bucks.
Some kids had earned as many as 100 Book Bucks over the course of the month, and at the end of the weekend, they had spent over 1,030 Book Bucks at the auction and Marketplace.
