5 Ways to Win Big This Summer

Here’s a roundup of some of the many different ways you can win at your library this summer!

5. Weekly Giveaways on Instagram

In honor of this year’s Get Creative summer learning theme, we hope to spark some creativity in our Instagram feed. Answer our questions about creativity, and you could win $25 gift cards to local businesses, a magnetic poetry kit, an adult coloring kit, and more!

4. Bookface Contest on Instagram

From June 4th through July 22nd, the patron who creates the best bookface on Instagram will win an Instax Mini camera kit.

To enter, tag your photo #jcplbookfacecontest. If your account is set to private, you may direct message us the photo; however, the library reserves the right to repost your photo (with attribution) to our social media accounts. You must be able to pick up your prize at JCPL. As always, JCPL employees and their families are ineligible to win prizes.

Learn more about bookfaces on our blog.

3. Walk Around Kentucky

Meet new people, get some exercise, and get creative at area parks this summer with our Walk Around Kentucky program.

Each week, the library will host a walk combined with a creative lesson or activity at parks around the Bluegrass. Join us for these group walks, walk with friends and family, or walk on your own.

No matter where and when you walk (or run or roll), keep track of all the miles you cover between June 4th and July 28th on the logs available in the library or online. You can submit one log per week.

All logs will be entered in a drawing to win one of four $50 Amazon gift cards.

2. The Creative Spark Challenge

Ignite your creativity with fun activities using the library’s many resources.

For each activity you complete from June 4th through July 22nd, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a $150 Amazon gift card or a $150 Blick Art Materials gift card. Download the forms on the Creative Spark webpage, or pick them up at the library.

1. Read, Listen, and/or Attend Library Programs

You probably know that we have Summer Learning Logs for children and teens, but adults can win by reading, too. To enter, read or listen to an audiobook for 5 hours, or read or listen to an audiobook for 3 hours and attend one library program.

 For every log submitted, you will receive an entry into our grand prize drawings of $300 gift cards. You will also be entered into weekly drawings to win a $50 Amazon gift card.

Adult reading logs
