Adult Winter Reading Program set to begin
Reading fans ages 18 and older can win prizes in January and February for taking part in the 2018 Adult Winter Reading Program.
“Color Your Winter RE(a)D” is the theme for the program that asks participants to complete a literary bingo by reading five books from a color-themed reading log/bingo card. Participants can read five topics in a row or choose any five subjects to score a bingo.
Reading topics include such themes as “Book with a Black Cover,” “Green Writers – Debut Author,” “Silver Screen – Books to Movies,” “Red Hot Romance” and “Cure the Winter Blues – Humorous Stories.” Other topics are biographies of an artist, authors of color and Missouri authors. The free space is re-reading a favorite book.
Participants can pick up a log any time during January and February at the Belt Branch, Savannah Branch or the Bookmobile. Once they score a bingo, they will receive an invitation to a program party, a free book, a library mug (for the first 200 finishers) and will be entered in a prize drawing.
Prizes in the drawing will be awarded at each branch (Belt, Savannah and Bookmobile) and include grand prizes of $50 gift cards, second-place prizes of an adult coloring book and gel pen set and third place prizes of $10 gift certificates to Books Revisited.
