Adult Winter Reading Group Begins January 1 At Timberland Regional Library


Submitted by Timberland Regional Library

It’s cold out there, but you’re indoors, you’re warm, reading a book, and while you’re at it building up your chances of winning a bag of books and treats, or even a nice little getaway. Giving substance to this vision, the annual Timberland Regional Library (TRL) Adult Winter Reading program is offering chances to win prizes while reading books you love in the format you prefer, whether print, audio, or electronic.

Participating is simple. Pick up an Adult Winter Reading brochure/reading log form at any Timberland library or print one from the Timberland Regional Library website at Read five books or listen to five audio books between January 1 and March 15. For each five books you finish, complete the form with the title, author and brief review of each book. Bring your list to a Timberland library by Friday, March 15 and fill out a separate prize entry form.
