Sixth grader Lexie G. was the lucky Tween/Teen participant that won the Hewlett-Packard Laptop Computer at today’s Palm Springs Public Library’s Summer Reading Fun Fest teen finale program.
Her completed program punchcard was drawn by Barbara Roberts, Director of Library Services, this afternoon at the Tween/Teen gaming and finale program. Kids played Wii games, had snacks, won grab bag prizes and were presented with a certificate for participating in this years program. Then the winner’s name was drawn and the HP Laptop awarded to Lexie as her sisters and mother looked on.
This year’s theme was all about water and to promote the importance of water, the Desert Water Agency partnered with the Library to provide the grand prizes. Their generous donation provided the Hewlett-Packard (HP) laptop computer that Lexie won. A HP desktop computer and a Smart Irrigation Controller will be given away at the Youth and Adult finale on Saturday.
The Summer Reading Fun Fest began on June 5th and ended today for Tween/Teen participants; the program will end on Sat. July 31st for Youth and Adults.
At Saturday’s finale program, scheduled for 2:00 p.m. in the Youth Story Room, attendees will enjoy a magic show from the Amazing Dana and then the remaining grand prizes, courtesy of the Desert Water Agency, will be awarded. Program completion is mandatory to be entered to win; all entries must be completed by end of day on Friday July 30th to be entered into the grand prize drawing on Saturday, but you do not need to be present to win.
Children, toddler age through the 5th grade, that complete their program, will be entered into the drawing that will award the HP Desktop Computer System. And all adults who sign-up and complete their program will be entered into the drawing for a Smart Irrigation Controller, which uses daily local weather data to adjust runtimes and customize watering times every day. There will also be some water filtration items courtesy of the Palm Springs Office of Sustainability.
