Visit Your Local Library in September to Win Children's Books

Release Date: 
9/11/2015

Ready 2 Learn is sponsoring prize packs for families that use their library cards during the month of September. There will be 10 prize packs total—each prize pack contains new children's books, learning games and a $50 deposit into an Oregon College Savings Plan account (account must be opened by cardholder).

How do you enter? When you use your Ready 2 Learn card to check out a book OR attend a library program anytime during September, your card is scanned and you are entered to win. The drawing takes place October 1 and winners will be announced on the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/readytolearnoregon. Limit one entry per cardholder and one prize pack per family. If you don’t have a Ready 2 Learn card, you can visit your local library and sign up for one for free.

Ready 2 Learn is a program designed to give parents and children ages birth through five years access to a world of books, movies, music and fun activities, plus opportunities to meet other parents of young children and a free monthly newsletter. The R2L card also helps families start building a college savings account in their child’s name. For more information about Ready 2 Learn, visit readytolearnoregon.org.

Ready 2 Learn is for children who live in Umatilla, Morrow, Union, Baker, Grant and Wallowa counties through a partnership with regional libraries, the InterMountain Education Service District, Greater Eastern Oregon Behavioral Health Inc., Eastern Oregon Coordinated Care Organization and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Ready 2 Learn is funded by a Library Services and Technology Act grant managed through the Oregon State Library. Additional funds are provided by the Oregon College Savings Plan.
