This year Jackson District Library is offering reading programs with prizes for all ages, from children through adults. The grand prize for adults is a $300 gift card to Jackson Crossing! And all the adults have to do to enter the drawing is read something! Anything! The more a person reads, the more entries they can have. And the more prizes they are eligible for. There are also entry forms available for writing a review of a book read. This has been lots of fun for patrons in the past, both writing the reviews and reading what fellow patrons have written.
Covering the same weeks as the children's programs, this program can be used by adults to set a great example for the children in the family as well as to motivate the grownups to enjoy the library for themselves.
Need fresh ideas for reading? No problem--there are some great books coming out just in time for the summer season. New York Times' bestselling author Brad Thor returns with a new chapter in the life of Navy SEAL Scot Harvath. In The Last Patriot Harvath is in a race to reveal the prophet Mohammed's last secret, one that could defeat militant Islam once and for all!
Legendary horror writer Dean Koontz gives us another encounter with Odd Thomas in Odd Hours. Recurring dreams of tides bring Odd to the California coast, where he will fight officials and more threatening forces.
Blockbuster Janet Evanovich will bring out Stephanie Plum’s Fearless Fourteen in June! This heroine’s hysterical adventures have captured readers from all walks of life. Nora Roberts will release the second book in her Sign of Seven trilogy, The Hollow, in May. This award-winning author just can’t miss, and this story is as thrilling as all her others.
If none of these are quite what you like, don’t hesitate to check with the reference desk or to try the library database Novelist for suggestions. Just don’t forget to join the summer reading programs and try for the great prizes being given away!
