Summer Winner

FBAdultSRP2012Virginia has been a Fairbanks Library customer for several years now, and I’m sure it has paid off in many ways.  This summer, though, it paid off in dollars.  Just for participating in our adult Summer Reading Program and reading at least 5 books between June 4 and August 11, Virginia won a $30 Amazon.com gift card.  Virginia, we hope you get something that you will enjoy a lot.  The rest of you might want to keep this opportunity in mind when next June rolls around.  Reading is fun anyway, and the chance to win a prize just makes it more fun.
