The Adult Winter Reading Contest at the Timberland Regional Libraries got underway with the new year on Friday.
Adults who want to participate should gather up or download all those books they’ve been meaning to read. The more books read by March 15, the more chances they have to win an overnight getaway for two.
Here’s how it works:
▪ Between Jan. 1 and March 15, read or listen to a minimum of five books.
▪ Pick up entry forms — one for every five books you read or listen to — at any Timberland library, or download from the website, www.trl.org (hover over programs).
▪ On each form, write the titles, the authors’ names, a brief review of each book, and a ranking of 5 (excellent) to 1 (would not recommend).
▪ Turn in the forms at any Timberland library. Each form serves as a contest entry.
The grand prizes are getaways at local bed and breakfasts and resorts. Other prizes include Adult Winter Reading book bags containing reading material and specialty foods. Also, there are a variety of prizes from local merchants.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older and current Timberland cardholders. Only one grand prize and one local prize per person is allowed.
