Adult and Teen Summer Reading 2013 Overview
Reading just got more lucrative for Whitman County adults thanks to a donation from the Coeur d‘Alene Casino and Resort. Now all adult finishers in the library’s Summer Reading program will be included in a grand prize drawing for a gift basket from the Resort that includes an overnight stay and 2 tickets to the buffet.
Adult finishers also have a chance at a second prize of a $50 Rosauers gift card courtesy of the Friends of Whitman County Library. To enter, adults just need to read and briefly review 3 books by August 31. Besides the countywide grand prize drawings, finishers will receive a variety of prizes from local business sponsors. Entry forms are available at all 14 branch locations or online from the Whitman County Library website.
Teens Summer Reading also continues through the end of August, with grand prize being an HD flip video camera. Webb’s Slough donated Sprint Boat Race youth tickets to each branch for teen drawing prizes. Three short book reviews submitted online or in person is all that’s needed for entry. Additional prizes and drawings for teens vary by branch location.
Who says Summer Reading is just for kids? Certainly not the Whitman County Library. Adult/Teen Summer Reading kicks off on June 1 and continues through August 30. All 14 branches offer special programs designed to meet the interests of each community.
A countywide program is also being offered to WCL patrons. Read or listen to three books, write a brief review to win a prize and be entered in a drawing for both local and countywide prizes. The teen prize drawing is for an awesome Ultra HD Flip Video Camera. The adults may win a $50 Rosauers certificate. Entry forms are available at every branch and on the Whitman County Library website. Forms may be submitted online on the Whitman County Library website or dropped off at your local branch.
