is our Summer Reading program for adults!
Read books! Win prizes! Escape reality!
THE FINE PRINT
1. Who is eligible to win our fabulous prizes?
If a reader is age 18 or over, has a LINCC library card, and has registered as a participant in our Adult Summer Reading Program, each form they fill out or email (listing one book read) counts as one chance to win a prize.
Alas, employees of the Lake Oswego Public Library are not eligible to win prizes.
2. How do readers participate?
For each book read or listened to, participants may fill out an official prize drawing entry form. All required information must be entered on the form in order to be entered in the drawing. Required information: Name, Contact Info, Book Title. The form is placed in the official prize drawing Entry Box. Alternatively, those who find it difficult to visit the library regularly may instead send one email for each book read (again, listing the title of book read, participant’s name, and participant’s contact info to ktaylor (at) ci.oswego.or.us
3. How and when can people register to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Program?
Participants can register June 1 through August 31, 2012, at the Adult Services/Fiction Desk on the main floor, which is generally staffed all hours the library is open. To register, the participant’s card number is entered in the Adult Summer Reading Sign Up Log. Participants may register by supplying their card number in person or by telephone.
4. Must participants read books in the library’s collection?
5. How long does a book have to be to count for the drawing?
We usually consider a ‘book’ a volume of 175 pages or more, but we don’t check up on this. It’s up to you.
6. What’s the scoop on prizes?
A library staff member will draw names for the weekly prizes. Winners will be notified via telephone or email. In the course of the summer, an individual may win only one weekly prize, but all entries (including those of weekly winners) will be entered in the Grand Prize drawing. We plan to draw the winning entry for the Grand Prize in early September. There is no need to be present at a drawing to win any of our Adult Summer Reading Program prizes. All prizes will be held for winners until the end of October, 2012; prizes not claimed by November 1, must, alas, be forfeited.
Our Grand Prize is a gift certificate for a stay at the Oregon Coast. Weekly prizes generally include gourmet chocolates and bookish gift certificates.
Thanks for participating!
