Using the “Be Creative @ the Library” statewide theme, this summer the Brown Deer Public Library will be introducing its first Summer Reading Program for Adults.
Men and women, 18 years old and older, will have the opportunity to participate by reading titles of their choice, making their own selections or selecting from suggestions and resources provided by the library staff. Adults need only to pick up the program bookmarks when they check out their books or audio books. While they are reading they may use the bookmark to mark their page. When they finish reading the title, they simply fill out the bookmark and use it as an entry form to drop in one of several “incentive to read boxes” in the library. Participants may read whatever books interest them: fiction, non-fiction or listen to unabridged audio books.
The Friends of the Brown Deer Library are sponsoring the program by providing money for the “incentives.” Among the incentives are a $50 gift card for groceries, $25 movie cards, a DVD player, a cordless drill, a portable paper shredder, a beverage gift basket and Friends Book Bags. Adults may fill out a bookmark/entry for each title they listen to or read. The more books one completes, the more chances he or she will have to earn the incentive of their choice.
Reading may be done between June 1st and August 31st. The drawing for the incentives will be done in mid-September and winners be notified.
It’s a great way to earn fun rewards for something most adults enjoy doing anyway!
