I don't know what you got if you fell short. I imagine there must have been some sort of recognition for having participated, but I never did find out if that was the case because I always went zipping right past my goal. They also had field trips to the zoo or museums or some other such activities. One time they had a trip to a theater to see a play of Treasure Island with an all female cast.
I really wish my local library had done this when I was a kid..I would have surpassed the goal too.
