Adult Summer Reading 2016

All Summer 2016 through Friday September 2nd, 2016

DavidBowieREADHello Norwood readers! We have two great options for adults to take part in summer reading with the Morrill Memorial Library in 2016. Everyone high school-aged or older can take part in both these summer reading activities.

For every book you read this summer, you can enter to win a weekly drawing for a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card. To enter these weekly prize drawings, fill out and submit this form, OR fill out the paper version and return it to the submission box on the Circulation Desk. Paper forms can be found on the Circulation and Reference Desks. There will be a grand prize drawing on Friday September 2 from all these entries for a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card. If you write a book review on your form, we’ll post it (anonymously) in the library and on this page. This way, we can all share book recommendations!

If you’d like a challenge, take part in our Reader’s BINGO. The BINGO sheet can be found here or picked up in the library. You can double-dip with both the weekly prize entry and the BINGO sheet, but each title can only be counted once on the BINGO sheet itself. For every completed BINGO row, you get one entry in the drawing for a David Bowie READ poster from the American Library Association. Sheets must be turned in by noon on Friday September 2nd.

Questions? Please contact either Nancy Ling (nling@minlib.net, 781-769-0200 x228) or Liz Reed (lreed@minlib.net, 781-769-0200 x110). Have fun!
