Summer Discovery

Tales, Tails & Trails written on white torn paper with animal print background

KFPL invites you to get wild by participating in Tales, Tails & Trails: Summer Discovery that runs June 21 - July 30. All programs and activities this summer will be themed around animals! You can earn scratch-off tickets to win cool prizes!


Read tales of your choice from June 21st - July 26th for a chance to win prizes! Here's how it works:

1. Check out a book or audiobook from the Library. The library staff member who serves you will give you a scratch-off ticket. You may also borrow books or audiobooks from the Library's e-media collection and show your virtual book shelf on your digital device to a staff member to receive a ticket. (Limit: Only one scratch-off ticket can be earned per person per day)

2. Scratch your ticket to see what you won!

  • "Small Prize" = Select a prize from the small prize bin available for your age group.
  • "Big Prize" = Select a prize from the BIG PRIZE BIN available for your age group.
  • "Grand Prize Entry" = You will be entered into your age group's Grand Prize Drawing.

3. Write your name and phone number and circle your age group on your scratch-off ticket and give it to a library staff member to redeem your prize.
