Ambassador Benefits
You’ll have to supply your own mini-donuts, but the other bennies are just as plentiful and  rewarding:

  • A State Fair gate pass
  • A cool t-shirt: Read to Live, Live to Read
  • A Blue Ribbon Bargain Book
  • A great day at the Fair!

More details —
Read and Ride Day is the Minnesota State Fair discount day for library users. Anyone showing a library card at the ticket booth will receive a discount. As part of the celebration there will be a Read & Ride library event in Carousel Park (in front of the Grand Stand) from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm with free family activities. Library Ambassadors are the key to making the event a success!
