The “Bikes for Books” reading program is still underway at the Green Lake Branch Library (7364 E Green Lake Dr N).

Children in first through third grades have been reading books all fall for a chance to win a bike, helmet and lock.

Participants can enter their names into a drawing one time for every ten books that they have read between Monday, October 3 and Saturday, December 3, 2011. Each entry requires a short oral book report to to a librarian on one book. One girl and one boy will win.

A prize drawing will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, December 5 at the Green Lake Library. Winners must be present to win.

“So far only a few entries have trickled in,” Children’s Librarian Joanna Trefethen reports, adding that those kids that do get entries in will have a great chance to win.

“Bikes for Books” is funded by the Green Lake Masonic Lodge #149. For more information about the contest, contact Joanna Trefethen at (206) 684-7547 or joanna.trefethen [at]

    My son went into the library this Saturday and the librarian told him it was only open to 2nd and 3rd graders.  He’s in 1st grade.  Does anyone know if its open to 1st graders?
