Summer reading is for adults, too! In addition to all the great summer programming for kids and teens, Des Plaines Public Library invites you to sample our vast “menu” with the Adult Summer Reading Diner, which is offering prizes and programs for adults as well, just for reading.
Starting on June 25th, we will be taking entries for a raffle to win a free Kindle touch! All you need to do is read a book, fill out a ticket with your information and the book you read, and that’s a chance to win. One book read=one chance to win, with no limit on the number of books you can read.
Speaking of there being no limit to the number of books you can read, for those of you who are “Power Readers,” there will be a prize just for book lovers given to those who read twenty or more books while the Summer Reading Club is going on. In addition to your prize, you can have your picture up on the All-You-Can-Read Wall of Fame on the 3rd floor of the library-- just as prestigious if you’d finished the prize porterhouse at a steakhouse, but without the stomachache!
Surely, reading is its own reward, but with these incentives, the experience just became a little sweeter.
