Adult Summer Reading 2024 Print
Active ImageCongratulations to our first set of prizewinners in"The Adventure Begins at your Library" Summer Reading Program.

Our winner in the Name That National Park trivia contest was Kimi Cousino (Badminton set). Two others were also selected from those who had all the correct answers to receive browsing bags, Josh Fry and Danielle Grubb. The three winners selected from those who submitted Book Review sheets were Wanda Starcher (Strawberry Patch), Tiffany Moore (Stanley Cup), Gail Bunnell (Lunch Cooler with Ice Pack).

Adults can win prizes just by reading through August 3. All you have to do is be at least 18 years of age and fill out a Book Review slip at the library for each book you read (or listen to). The final two prize drawings will be held July 13 and August 3. The more times you enter, the better your chance of winning.

Library users also may win prizes by participating in three trivia contests. Prizes will be awarded based on the most correct answers, also on July 13 and August 3. For more information and entry sheets, please visit the library.

All summer reading participants automatically will be entered in the grand prize drawing (held August 3) for a Blackstone Tabletop Griddle. Three runners-up prizes — $50 store gift cards to Kroger, Subway and Lowes — also will be awarded.

The summer reading program runs through July 31 with a Teen Review Raffle and Adventure Bingo. For every hour teens read, they can submit a Teen Review for their choice of two prizes. The more you read, the better your chances of winning.

Congratulations to our first two winners. Mahi Patel won a light-up frisbee and light-up soccer ball, and Issac Mills won a backpack with water bottle and bird identification guide.

The final prize drawing takes place July 31. Teens also may complete five boxes on the Be Better Bingo board and submit it by July 31 to be entered in a drawing for one of two $50 Visa gift cards.

Each teen who turns in either a Teen Review or a Be Better Bingo form gets a drawstring sports bag with a collapsible frisbee and waterproof phone pouch. (Limit one per person.)
