Weekly Prizes for Adults

Cheering Man Courtesy of Vital Imagery LtdThe Barbara Bush Branch Library is hosting a Science Saturday Series for adults this summer. Each Saturday programs will be held on various topics. One week you can practice 3D design. The next week you could be making your very own laundry soap.

Not only that, but there will be a door prize given away each Saturday as well. That’s right. Those who attend a program will be entered to win a $20 gift card for a local bookstore. We’ll draw the name at the end of the presentation and one lucky winner will walk away with the gift card right then and there. How cool is that?

Summer Reading Starts Next Week

Summer is here, and once again we're having Summer Reading Programs full of fun activities and great reading incentives! This summer, we're giving away all kinds of prizes--coffee mugs for adults, earbuds for teens, books for children, and books & bibs for babies. We are also having a book bundle raffle for early sign ups.

Have Book… Will Travel…. And Win!

Are you reading quite a lot this summer or are being read to? I bet you registered for the Summer Reading Program 2013? No? What? Did you think that it’s too late to register? Oh No! It’s definitely not. You still have time to register.The registration ends August 10th, 2013 but you will still have some time after that to log in your books.

 

Summer Readers You Still Have Time

The early bird gets the worm, but it's not too late for the book worm to get the prize.  The Summer Reading Program is ending August 10th.  There is still time for all you book worms out there to sign up.  You have 10 days left and until the 17th to receive your prizes.  So don't give up or miss out folks. Read, log in and come into the library for your winnings.  We hope to see you soon!
