Adult Summer Reading Club 2013
Reading is an Adventure!
Joining and participation are easy! All Downers Grove card holders are welcome to join. Visit the second floor Ask Us Desk to pick up your Summer Reading Club sheets, or print one here! Read and record six books, then visit the library to turn in your sheets! It's as simple as that.
The first 300 people to return completed sheets will win a ticket to the Tivoli Theatre! Every participant will recieve an entry into a drawing. For every additional six books you read, you will earn another drawing entry. The more you read, the greater chance you will have of winning!
Turn in all sheets to the Ask Us Desk by August 4 to be eligible for prizes.
First prize: 2 tickets to a nonconference Northwestern Wildcats football game.
Second prize: $50.00 Downtown Downers Grove gift certificate, available for use at any participating Downtown Downers Grove business.
