There’s also still time for you to win a $50 gift certificate by telling us when you see our ad on WCCA TV 13! Just tell us what day and time, or what show it was paired with, and we’ll enter you into the contest.

And summer, of course, is getting closer. Teachers, educators and parents, please don’t forget to send your school summer reading lists as soon as possible to so we can make sure we have your students’ books!
