Escape the Ordinary
PPL's 2015 Summer Reading Program for Adults
The rules are quite simple: Pick a line running across, down, or diagonally, choose the appropriate books from the adult collection, and then cross off the squares after you’ve read the books (no need to write down the titles).
Once you’ve completed READO, turn in your sheet at the 2nd floor Reference Desk and receive your coffee (or tea) mug! (Mugs will be available for pickup at a later date.)
While there is a limit of one mug per reader, we encourage you to turn in multiple READO sheets for a better chance of winning the grand prize drawing.
Need help finding books to read? Stop by the Reference Desk and ask any of the staff for suggestions—we have lots of ideas for you!
Check out the weekly trivia contest, either at the Reference Desk or on the library’s Facebook page, for more fun and prizes.
