    /uploadedImages/Departments/Library_New/Images/eighth-note.jpg Welcome!  

    We have a wonderful summer planned, with reading and music-related events at all 10 PPL sites.

    We're keeping things "green" this year, so registration and activity logs are online at http://pasadenasr.evanced.info

    All the information you need to sign up, log your activity, and earn chances in the Grand Prize drawing, is right here. 

    Happy Reading!

    Register at our Summer Reading Challenge site, starting June 13.

    If you joined last year, you'll need to sign up again for this year's program--just click on "Sign Me Up" then "Signed Up Before?" to find your 2014 account.

    Track your reading and library-related activities online, and log them any time between June 13 and August 8. Log your reading and library-related activities one at a time. 

    For every 5 items you log – books, activities or a mix of both - you will earn an entry into the Grand Prize drawing. 
    One Grand Prize winner will be drawn at each Library site, and winners will be announced on August 15.
