Summer Reading Begins!

Our summer reading program for adults begins today, June 29(can you believe it's the end of June already?).  If you haven't signed up, you still can.  In fact, you can sign up any time you want.  But don't wait, as the later you sign up, the less chance you have of reaching your goal and possibly winning a prize(s) in our every-other-week drawings.  We have about 20 people signed up so far, and that's a great start.  For more details, see the post below or stop in to the library.  Keep on reading!

The Summer Reading Program Registration for children as well as adults begins June 22 and the actual reading and logging of hours begins the week after on June 29.  It will run for 6 weeks.  Below is the outline for the Adult Reading Program:

1. You must be 18 years or older
2. Sign up for the program in the library or on our main website
3. Read ANYTHING you want.  A book, a website, an article
4. Record your time in hours on the Summer Reading website(link is on the homepage)
5. After the first two weeks of the program, your name will be automatically entered to win a prize if you've read 10 or more hours
6. After 4 weeks you can win another prize if you've read 20 hours or more
7. If you've logged 30 or more hours at the end of the 6 week program, you will be eligible for our grand prize drawing.
8. Each drawing is separate and is not combined with the previous drawing. 
9. There will be multiple prizes for each drawing.
10. For each review you submit, you will get one extra chance at each of the prize drawings.  For example, if you submit three reviews and accomplish the 10 hour reading goal, you will have 4 entries into that particular drawing.  Reviews can be as simple as a few sentences or as detailed as you like.  Reviews are submitted through the same website as where you log hours.

Most importantly, HAVE FUN reading stuff!!
