Summer Reading 2022

Summer Reading:
June 4th – July 16th

Get rewarded for using the library!


Each day you visit, scratch off a card to reveal a prize. Everyone will win either a small prize or raffle tickets into our grand prize basket drawing in July.

You can also earn raffle tickets by checking out items at the library. 1 checkout = 1 raffle ticket.


Each week 2 $10 gift cards will be raffled off to local businesses. Get a raffle ticket each time you visit the library and for every item you check out!

You do not have to be a Steger or South Chicago Heights resident to participate.

Events this month:

Do I need to keep track of which books I read?

If you would like to, you can use the reading log you receive at signup to keep track of your summer reading progress. However, we are not keeping track of how many books you read this year. We want to encourage you to read what makes you happy, not to try to meet an arbitrary goal.

Do I need to keep track of which days I read?

We recommend making reading part of your daily habit, and tracking your days read is a great first step. If you find that your daily reading is becoming a chore, maybe change up what you are reading. Ask a librarian for help picking the right book. When you find the right book for you, it will be hard to put down!

Where are the raffle tickets?

Raffle tickets are stored electronically in a secure spreadsheet and will be drawn at random using None of your personal information will be shared with RafflePicker or anyone else.

Thank you to our donors!!!
