Think back to January – We know that’s a long way off, but you can do it. Remember that resolution you made? No, not the one about losing ten pounds. And not the one about giving up “________”. Wasn’t there one phrased something like “read more”? That’s the one. Here’s your chance to tackle it.
TFPL brings you ADULT SUMMER READING 2009:
“Master the Art of Reading”
It’s easier than you think!
1 – Read a book, any book!
We’ve got some great suggestions at the Ref Desk, and as the summer continues, we’ll have suggestions from other patrons, too.
2 – Fill out a simple recommendation form.
These are available here or in the library. For each form you complete, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a great prize. (See below.) ALSO – TFPL July & August Book Club choices are worth two entries. And, if you attend one of the Adult Summer Reading Programs, you’ll get an extra entry.
3 – Win a great prize!
This year, we’re giving away “Book Lover’s Bags”. Inside one of them is an Mp3 player; another contains a $25 Magic Valley Mall gift card. Drop by and see what other surprises are included…
Check out the official Summer Reading page for more information! You can also stop by the Reference Desk or send us an email.
What would summer be without our all-time favorites: backyard grilling, freshly-mown grass, and visits to the Library? No, really; I’m serious. If you’re looking to enjoy yourself this season, you can’t do better than relaxing with a good book. Let us give you a few ideas for inspiration…
From Books to Movies – We all know the book is always better, so before you make it to the multiplex this summer, read the books first. (The movie’s release date is also included, so you can be sure to finish reading before the movie comes out!)
Classic Summer Reads – In my mind, there are two kinds of summer reads: ones that are light and require little energy or ones that are absorbing and help you escape for a few hours. This list will give you a little bit of both.
2009, So Far – These are all books that have received good “buzz” so far this year. Not to mention have the recommendations of some of the Library staff. Enjoy!
