We have a unique and fun display for RAFT at the Lone Jack Branch. You can watch the chocolate "kiss" come out of the gift box every time the door opens to the branch. The kids and adults love it. It also helps to start up a conversation about this family program.
Congratulations to our First Golden Ticket Winner!
Congratulations Scott on finding the first Golden Ticket at the Excelsior Springs Branch! How do you find a Golden Ticket, you ask? Come to the Excelsior Springs Branch and check out qualifying RAFT books from our children's section. Your Golden Ticket may be inside!
Find the golden ticket! RAFT is heading down the chocolate river this year! Join us for an adventure full of Oompa Loompas, everlasting gobstoppers, and endless amounts of candy. Don’t miss out on your chance to earn a free book, try to win a DVD or candy basket, and go on a treasure hunt! You’ll get all of this if your family participates in our RAFT program.
Congratulations to Ms. Slote's 5th grade class at Orrick Elementary, our fourth Golden Ticket winners! The class found one of the Golden Tickets, which means there's only one more ticket left at the Excelsior Springs Branch, so hurry in!
Just a little reminder: If you and your family are participating in our Read Aloud Family Time (RAFT) program this year, all books must be logged by Saturday, March 3rd. As long as your titles are entered by then, you will have a week's grace period (until Friday, March 9th) to come in and pick up your free copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
If you haven't heard about RAFT yet, there's still a little time to get started! Check out the details here.
If you have been to the MCPL Camden Point Branch lately, you have noticed the Oompa Loompas lurking around the library. What a great way to get excited about this year's program with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
