Hi Katie,
This year we are giving free youth tickets to every library that requests them with no limits. I'm hoping we will be able to continue this program in years to come.
As promised here is some information about our new, youth ticket incentive program. Basically, we want to make this program as easy and valuable for you as possible. As requested, here are the main points for your reflection.
1.     You tell me how many tickets you would like to use for your Summer Reading and/or other library youth programs. We are eventually going to have a form on our website but…it’s a work in progress so please just call me. I would need all your contact information: Name, Library, Position, Address, Phone, and Email.
2.     I mail you Free Admission youth tickets (ages 11 and under).
3.     Each youth ticket would come with a 2-for-1 adult admission ticket.
4.     At the end of the summer I will call, or email, and ask how many undistributed tickets you have left. (We want to eliminate as much waste as possible unused tickets will be reactivated next year.) You tell me your number and I will send a postage-paid self-addressed envelope so that you may return them.
5.     I will also ask for your comments, observations, and suggestions about next year. How might we improve the program? What would work better for you? Do you want to meet me for lunch? Helpful, things like that.
Bottom line is that we are a big statewide family event and we hope that our tickets enhance your reading program.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Deb Wheelbarger
