3rd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program starts today

Adult Winter Reading Program 2014

Read and win prizes!

Get ready to read, comrade!

The 3rd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program starts today (Monday, January 6, 2014). Read books and win prizes during these months when you just want to curl up with a good book.

This year’s theme is “Hot Reads for Cold Nights: Sochi 2014 Edition”. We’re celebrating all things Olympics, winter sports, and Russian. Complete a Tic-Tac-Toe (or a Diabolical Tic-Tac-Toe if you want a challenge) and get entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for a Kindle e-reader and a “Dinner & a Movie”. Both prizes are valued at approximately $100.

You can also turn in Book Reviews and get entered into a separate prize drawing for gift cards to Barnes and Noble.

Tic-Tac-Toe cards and Book Review forms are available at the library, and can be downloaded from our website: www.wilsonvillelibrary.org/awrp.

Last day to turn in completed cards and forms is Monday, March 10, 2014.

So get reading!

Here come the Olympics

Vancouver 2010 OlympicsAnd we are ready to take you there!

Reserve one of our public computers and watch the competitions (or maybe the torch lighting ceremony is more your speed?) online. Learn about the sports or catch up on the latest scandals with our local and national newspapers, like Wilsonville Spokesman, The Oregonian, The New York Times, and USA Today, or magazines, like Newsweek and Sports Illustrated, or books in our non-fiction collection (796 is the magic number). Get into the Olympic spirit with movies based on true Olympic stories, like Cool Runnings and Miracle.

We also have programs in the Olympic vein. Today kids in 3rd through 5th grade can join us at 4 p.m. for the Afterschool Book Bash celebrating Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief.

Teens have their own Olympic event with the Teen Check-Out: The Olympians on Friday, February 19, at 6:30 p.m.
