How to Earn Your Hat Trick
First, pick up a Hat Trick Reading Program entry form from a participating public library, including Ada Community libraries and the public libraries of Boise, Meridian, Kuna, Caldwell and Nampa.
1: Win a ticket to an Idaho Steelheads game just by checking out a book from your participating library. Be sure to get your form stamped when you check it out.
2: Win another ticket by reading with a family member for 20 minutes for 7 days. Make sure a parent initials the reading boxes on your form.
3. Complete your "hat trick" and win an Idaho Steelheads cap by writing a 100-word essay or drawing a picture about the Idaho Steelheads Hockey team. Include your name on the essay or picture, and attach it to the entry form. You may read about the Steelheads at http://www.idahosteelheads.com/home.aspx.
To claim your prizes, bring your completed form to the library by Sunday, February 21. For more information, please call 972-8201.
