Welcome to Summer. Read. 2012, our annual reading program for adults!
Join the Calgary Public Library for a 9-week reading adventure, beginning on Wednesday June 20. Each week we’ll dive into a new theme: explore, play, imagine, create, live, laugh, learn, grow and… be. Together we’ll discover new books that will keep you reading all summer.
It’s easy to participate in our Summer. Read. program either in person, or on Facebook!
Visit your favorite branch, or to one you’ve never been before, and browse the Summer. Read. 2012 display with books, DVDs and CDs that connect to the theme. In each displayed item you’ll find a ballot. Fill in the ballot by sharing a review of an item you borrowed and return the ballot to the library for your chance to win.
We’ll also post information about the weekly theme every Wednesday here and on our Readers’ Nook blog and on our Facebook page. When you comment on our Summer.Read. Facebook posts, and tell us what books or DVDs or CDs (etc.!) you’ve been enjoying, you’ll also be entered to win great prizes!
Did we say prizes?!
The Weekly Prize at every branch is a Calgary Public Library tote bag for all the books, CDs and DVDs you borrow as well as a Calgary Public Library journal. One online participant will also win a bag and journal each week.
The Grand Prize is a Kobo Reader! At the end of the contest 10 Kobo Readers will be given out. All the weekly ballots from all our branches will be pooled for a chance to win 9 Kobo Readers, and all the online posts will be pooled for a chance to win 1 Kobo Reader.
So start flexing your reading muscles and prepare to enjoy some great summer reads with us this summer!
Facebook Live Chat
To get the ball rolling, join us on Facebook Wednesday June 20th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. as we kick off Summer.Read. 2012 with a live Library Chat. Tell us your last three favourite reads and we’ll give you suggestions for your next great book.
Then join us every Wednesday after that until August 29 for more great reading suggestions in our Readers’ Nook and on Facebook.
Until then, here are a few of our favourite reads for summer!
