July 2016: Outreach Newsletter

  1. 1. ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, SUMMER READ! Another summer is upon us and with that comes another year of the summer reading program. This year’s theme for libraries across the country is: On Your Mark, Get Set, Read! which entails all things sports and staying active. But, the Outreach Department here at WPL won’t make you jump over any hurdles for a prize. All you have to do is write your name on one of our nifty reading score cards (just like the golden tickets from last year) and return them to us during our de- livery days in July and August for a chance to be entered for a prize. If you write a description of a book or movie you enjoyed on the back of the score card you will be entered for a chance to win a grand prize, brought to you by amazing local sponsors. It doesn’t get any easier than that! Keep a lookout for a score card in your green delivery bag starting in June. Prizes will be delivered in Sep- tember.
