Summer Reading Opportunity with Edvest and the Green Bay Packers

We are excited to announce that for this year’s summer reading programs throughout Wisconsin, public libraries will partner with the Edvest College Savings Plan and the Green Bay Packers to promote your summer reading activities through media events, free promotional materials, advertising, and an Edvest scholarship drawing with great Packer prizes!
How it works:
1.       Sign up your library to participate. It’s easy!
2.       Edvest sends you a Summer Reading 2013 promotional kit including bookmarks, entry cards, and cut-out standing displays.
3.       On or before June 1, place the standing display in an entry area or near your children’s area. Use the bookmarks at check out and keep the online entry forms available (most of your patrons will likely prefer fast sign up online).
We need to know your participation by April 30 and your preferred quantities. We are offering small, medium and large promotional kit sizes. Participating libraries will receive instructions and a URL to order additional materials. All promotional materials are free of charge and you may re-order as often as you would like.
