    Newton. The Sussex County Library System (SCLS) is celebrating Leap Year with the "Leap Into Reading & Win!" reading raffle. Children in fourth grade through adults earn one raffle ticket for each book read or listened to throughout February. A variety of prizes, from $50 Amazon gift cards for adults, to a fun day at Skylands Ice World for students, will be awarded at each SCLS library. Children as young as 6 months through third grade will be given reading logs for February, and can earn stickers or a small prize for every five books they read or have read to them. Raffle tickets and reading logs are available. All tickets must be turned in by 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29 to be included in the prize drawings the following Monday. Reading logs will be accepted through March 7.
