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!

For more information, please contact Andrea Erickson at 503-570-1593 or erickson@wilsonvillelibrary.org.

Adult Winter Reading Program ends Monday, March 11

ballot box at the library

Drop off your Tic-Tac-Toe cards, Books Reviews, and ballots at the Library

Get those Tic-Tac-Toe cards and Book Reviews in!

(And those Special Election ballots!)

To qualify for the Grand Prize Drawings of a Kindle Paperwhite (sorry, the Touch is no longer available) and a Dinner and a Movie ($75 gift certificate to Abella Italian Kitchen and $25 gift card to Regal Cinemas), turn in your completed Tic-Tac-Toe cards by 8 p.m. next Monday, March 11.

For those readers who want to share their thoughts (or feel like reading 3 books is just too much pressure), you can write a Book Review and turn that in for a separate drawing for $25 Barnes and Noble gift cards.

But hurry up! Time is almost out!

For more information, see the Adult Winter Reading Program page on the Library website.

Just in time for the rain!

Adult Winter Reading Program 2013

The Adult Winter Reading Program returns for a 2nd year with “Reading in a Winter Wonderland“.  Read books and get entered to win prizes, including a Kindle Touch and a “Dinner and a Movie” (valued at $100).

It’s easy to enter! Starting Monday, January 7, pick up a Tic-Tac-Toe card or Book Review form at the Library OR download them from our website. Turn in the completed forms by Monday, March 11, for entry in to the prize drawings.

Is there a better way to spend the cold drizzly days here than with a book? (I mean, if you can’t make it to Hawaii and read on a sandy beach, at any rate.)

Find out more on the Adult Winter Reading Program page.

Adult Winter Reading Program coming to an end

That’s right. You have exactly 4 days to turn in your completed Tic-Tac-Toe Card and Book Log for entry into the grand prize drawing featuring a Kindle Touch and a Wilsonville Gift Basket.

Okay, I think it’s four days. Maybe it’s five.  I can never figure out how to count the days right. Either way, make sure to turn in your cards by 8 p.m. on Monday, March 12th.

And if you haven’t seen it, Kallen Kentner wrote a fun and inspiring “thank you” to the Adult Winter Reading Program in this week’s Wilsonville Spokesman. If you have a subscription to the Spokesman , you’ll still have to log in to view the entire article. However, copies are available at the Library in our newspaper section to read at your leisure.

Don’t have enough time to make the Adult Winter Reading Program deadline? Don’t fret! You have three months until the Adult Summer Reading Program starts in June.

Which means three months to get your reading lists ready . . .

Adult Winter Reading Program is on!

It’s time to “Cozy Up with a Classic” – our first (and hopefully annual) Adult Winter Reading Program!

Get back on the reading track with this encouragement to read during these (normally dark and dreary) BRIGHT and COLD days. (Well, at least it’s sunny and freezing as I write this.)

There are two ways to play:

  1. Tic-Tac-Toe Card - Read (or listen to) three books that fit the categories on the Tic-Tac-Toe card in a straight line.
  2. Book Log - Read (or listen to) three books and write them down on the Book Log.

Turn in your completed Cards or Logs by Monday, March 12, to get entered into a prize drawing for a Kindle Touch or a Wilsonville Gift Basket (each valued at approximately $100).

Cozy Up with a Classic this winter with the Adult Winter Reading Program!
