Adult Summer Reading 2014 Print
Active ImageThere is still time to win a prize this summer, as the Adult/Teen Summer Reading program continues through Aug. 9.

Patrons have until Aug. 9 to submit entries to be eligible for the final prize drawing for the Literary Elements book reviews and Women Scientists Crossword Puzzle.

The 12 winners from the summer's first two drawings were: Angela Lakes, Amber Snodgrass, Joan Arnold, Linda Geers, Robin Bolin, and Kevin Mintkenbaugh, Barbara Wanless, Terry Hendrickson, Imogene Adams, Kathy Bartolotta, Ronda Kreusch, and Barb Hameister.

All adults and young adults who enter prize drawings this summer will automatically be entered in the grand prize drawing for a one-year premium family membership to the Cincinnati Zoo. Three runners-up prizes, $50 gift cards to Books 'N More, Kroger, and Gold Star Chili also will be awarded.

Adults and young adults can win prizes just by reading through August 9. All you have to do is be at least 13 years of age and fill out a Book Review slip at the library for each book you read (or listen to). There will be three drawings during the summer, on June 28, July 19 and August 9. 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 June 28, July 19 and August 9. For more information and entry sheets, please visit the library.
