Summer Reading has Begun!

HP-01-207

Our annual Summer Reading Program began on Monday, June 12th.  Come on in and sign up for our mystery themed extravaganza!

For Adults, each book read gives you an entry to win prize packs, candy, small themed gifts, and other neat prizes!  There are also quizzes that can be filled out for a chance to win end-of-summer gift cards to local restaurants and online stores.  When you sign up, you’ll receive a goody bag with the quizzes, a booklist, and other small favors to get you started.  In the goody bag is also a card for this blog!  Become a blog subscriber via email and be entered to win a special “Inspector Mallard” prize pack!

For Teens, each book read, movie watched, or CD listened to counts toward your chances to win the prizes listed above!  You also have a quiz in your goody bag that can be filled out for a chance to win end-of-summer gift cards to places like Gamestop, iTunes, and local restaurants.

While construction is still going on, please stop by the Reader’s Advisory desk in the East Wing to sign up and receive your goody bag and free first prize entry slip!

Any Questions?  Please call the library @ 847.259.6050 and ask for Reader’s Advisory, or comment on any of our blog posts!
