Library Reading Challenge for Adults
Mid-County Library/Wausaukee Branch and InfoSoup libraries challenge all adult library card holders to read books and write reviews in 2013 for a chance to win prizes.
Reading for enjoyment and knowledge is vitally important for adults. Itan take a person on adventures to discover exotic cultures, introduce fresh ideas and concepts, and stimulate the senses. Even while reading for fun, adults benefit unconsciously by building memory retention, storytelling, grammar, and vocabulary skills. Reading can also bring people together through discussion of shared ideas. Making time to read may be difficult, but the benefits are well worth the sacrifice.
In 2013, make a resolution to challenge to read. Regardless of how much reading is done in 2013, Mid-County Library/Wausaukee Branch and the InfoSoup libraries want to give rewards for efforts. For each library book read and reviewed on the InfoSoup Web site, adult library card holders will be entered into drawings to win prizes throughout the year. Prizes include gift certificates to Amazon and Barnes & Noble, Nooks, and Kindles.
