5 Ways You Can Win Big with Summer Learning

5. Enter Our Weekly Contests on Instagram

Follow @jesspublib on Instagram and look for our weekly contests. We’ll be asking questions like, “What does our theme, Build a Better Community, mean to you?” Join the conversation for a chance to win $25 gift certificates to local businesses.

4. Walk Around Kentucky

Meet new people, get some exercise, and discover local parks this summer with our Walk Around Kentucky program. Join us for group walks like this one at Camp Nelson, 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 4 and July 23. You can submit one log per week, plus an extra log each time you attend a group walk. All logs will be entered in our grand prize drawing for a $100 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods.

3. Take the Summer Learning Challenge

Build new skills. Discover library resources. Win great prizes.

Complete at least four activities between June 5 and July 23, and you can enter to win a Google Home, a Kindle Fire HD, or a $75 gift card to Amazon.

Watch the two-minute video below, and you’ll be that much closer to winning! Find more information and a list of the activities on our Summer Learning Challenge page.


2. 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.

Prizes include a $250 Lowe’s gift card, a portable generator, a double chaise patio rocker, or a 6-tool lithium ion cordless combo kit.

1. Build a Better Community

We think everyone wins when we work together to build a better community! Join us this summer as we celebrate the diversity and beauty of Jessamine County, build with Habitat for Humanity, learn how to create energy-efficient geodesic domes, and so much more.
