Participation in this year’s Adult Summer Reading program has been fantastic! Between the Robbins and Fox libraries, we have 141 people registered, and 430 raffle tickets entered – an average of 3 books per reader so far.
Many people have also contributed recommendations for their favorite summer reads; at the summer reading display table, you can pick up suggestion lists for fiction and nonfiction, as well as readers’ recommendations. Staff picks lists are also available online.
And now, without further ado, the mid-summer prizes! Ten lucky winners each receive five (5) free DVD rental coupons from the library. If you didn’t win a prize this time, don’t worry: there’s still the end-of-summer grand prize drawing. And of course, everyone wins the best prize of all: reading books you love!
Here are the books from the winning raffle tickets:
The Beginner’s Goodbye by Anne Tyler
A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin
Dexter By Design by Jeff Lindsay
The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
“F” is for Fugitive by Sue Grafton
The Shaggy Dog, and Other Murders by Fredric Brown
The Singles by Meredith Goldstein

Winners will be contacted by e-mail or phone, and can pick up their DVD coupons at the Reference Desk of the Robbins Library.
