What a great way to enjoy a stormy or sunny winter day! Take time to curl up with a great book or if you prefer a DVD, some music, or a magazine. To help encourage this San Diego County Library is offering its award-winning program, Winter Reading Challenge to all of San Diego County. Beginning on Monday, December 5th and running through Sunday, January 15, 2012 the Winter Reading Challenge is on! Check out the details.
All ages (adult, teen, kids) at all branches can take the challenge. Any library card holder (and a SDCL library card is free to all county residents!) can check out 5 items on their card and be eligible for a raffle ticket. Yes, you can win prizes! For every 5 items you check out, you have another chance to win prizes in the weekly drawings at one of our 35 branches! Enter any SD County Library branch and when you check out your books, you will get your raffle tickets and can enter in the fun. Each week there will be a drawing in each age category.
The prizes include Board Games, Ear Buds, Thumb Drives, Jigsaw Puzzles, Books, Puppets, Coffee Mugs, Free Tickets to Local Events, including San Diego Symphony, San Diego Repertory Theatre, Poway Center for Performing Arts, and Coupons for Rubios and Applebee’s!
(Not all entrants will win prizes. Prizes available while supplies last.)
What a great incentive to explore your local library–and to enjoy some of the many resources available to you. Try something new, maybe a new author or a new genre ( have you tried a mystery? chick lit? some new nonfiction? romance? fiction set in San Diego? ) Or try new kinds of music or new groups you have heard about but not listened to. Our DVD collection is extensive, as many of our card holders have discovered– first run movies, yours for a week of viewing for free!
Now is the time to come in and visit at your local library, enjoy browsing through our friendly marketplace of new, high interest items, with helpful library staff ready to assist you. Join the Winter Reading Challenge! Check out more details on our Winter Reading Challenge at the SDCL website or at your local branch.
