National Library Week

Libraries Transform

The theme for our 2017 National Library Week celebration is Libraries Transform. What does transformation look like in your library?

For Children

Kids, when you check out books from the Idaho Falls Public Library during National Library Week and throughout the month of April, don’t forget to look inside your books for big golden tickets. If you find one, you win a prize from the library’s treasure chest!

Bring your tickets to the junior desk to redeem your prize from the treasure chest.

But that’s not all! For each library card you use to check out books, you can pick up a small golden ticket and enter it into one of two prize drawings (details below).

Contest Details

Big Golden Tickets—Kids, did you find more than one big ticket? That’s great! You can redeem as many as you find in the books you check out. The key is that you have to check out the books to redeem any tickets inside. The treasure chest has fun stickers, posters, and prizes. Take your tickets to the staff desk to redeem your prizes.

Small Golden Tickets and the Grand Prize—You can redeem a small golden ticket for each library card you use to check out books (1 ticket per day per library card). Enter your little tickets into the box for the prize you want to win. Win a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prize (complete with 3 pounds of candy) or a 16-in-1 laser peg set! The library will draw the winners on May 1, 2017. To be in the drawing, you have to enter your tickets by the time the library closes on Saturday, April 29 (the library closes at 6:00pm).
