Adult Summer Reading is Up, Up, and Away: 06/16/2015
Get away from the everyday world by signing up for the Minot Public Library’s 2015 Adult Summer Reading Program. Want to travel to exotic locales? Go on an adventure into outer space? Take a trip back in time? Your great escape begins by picking up a tally sheet at the library’s main circulation desk. For every 500 pages read, you earn one ticket for entry into a drawing for one of five fabulous prizes. In addition to the tickets, the first 75 patrons to reach 1000 pages receive a USB car charger plug. The program continues through Thursday, August 13th. Logs will be due back at the library on August 14th. For more information, contact Brendan Chella, the Adult Services Librarian, at 701-852-1045 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy your amazing journey!
