The Lincoln County Reads Adult Summer Library Program is underway at T.B. Scott Free Library, where you can win prizes just for reading.
For the ninth consecutive year, T.B. Scott Library and Tomahawk Public Library co-sponsor Lincoln County Reads from May 27 through Aug. 21 to encourage and reward reading by adults. This year’s Adult Summer Library Program theme is “Literary Elements.”
Entering is easy. You’re eligible if you’re at least age 18. Read or listen to any book, fiction or nonfiction, in any format.
Pick up entry forms at T.B. Scott Library, write down the titles of five books you’ve experienced on each form, and drop completed forms in an entry box at the library. You may submit as many as 50 entries per contest.
Winners in three regular prize drawings, on June 13, July 11, and Aug. 8, will be announced on WJMT 730AM The Patriot’s Our Town program at 8:45 a.m., and notified by phone. Each reader can win once per contest in a regular drawing.
Hardee’s, Johnson Gifts & Home Décor, Hugo’s Pizza, Young’s Drug Store, Culver’s, Ye Olde Sweet Shoppe, Family Chiropractic Clinic, Les & Jim’s Lincoln Lanes, Auto Jockeys, and the Friends of T.B. Scott Library have donated prizes for the contest.
All entries are eligible for the Grand Prize, a basket of prizes from the various sponsors. The Grand Prize drawing will be broadcast live on WJMT 730AM The Patriot’s Our Town program at 8:45 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 22.
In last year’s contest, 203 readers submitted 611 entries after reading over 3,000 books, and 70 readers won prizes – including 15 who turned in just one entry.
Why reading contests? Reading can be useful and/or enjoyable – but reading is also critical to developing an informed and involved citizenry. The library is proud to sponsor reading contests to encourage and reward reading by all ages.
