\"What\'s a sure way to get children and young adults into the single biggest vault of knowledge to be found in their town?
Simple: Appeal to their basic sense of greed.\"Public and school libraries across the state on Saturday began a three-year campaign to raise youth\'s awareness of the learning opportunities found within their walls, and they did it by offering prizes ranging from compact disc players and NASCAR tickets to U.S. Savings Bonds, computers and rounds of mini-golf.
Two levels of gifts are being offered as incentives for young library patrons to get familiar with their local librarians. At the state level are the big-ticket electronic gizmos and savings bonds. At the local level, High Point merchants have donated six savings bonds, board games and gift certificates from their restaurants and shops.
