Golden Ticket Giveaway

The Durham Media Center’s annual Golden Ticket Giveaway happened Friday, April 22nd, and 50 lucky students began their day by finding Golden Tickets in their lockers. Golden Tickets were traded for brand new paperback books the media center had purchased with Scholastic dollars earned from its previous Scholastic Book Fairs. This is one of the most exciting media center events of the year because students are randomly chosen, and a little extra happy is brought to their day. That’s what books–and media centers–are designed for. Happy reading Durham!

Who Has a Golden Ticket?

 

Golden TicketAs a celebration of April’s School Library Month, the media center recently hosted a Golden Ticket Giveaway in the spirit of Roald Dahl’s classic novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Throughout the day Thursday, April 23rd, 50 lucky students found Golden Tickets in their lockers which they traded for new paperback books the media center had earned from its annual Scholastic Book Fair in March. Hopefully these treats brought smiles to the winners on the days directly after state testing.
