Reading Rocks!

Take up the Challenge

  

The Summer Reading Program at the Gilman Library is back!!!

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Summer Reading Program theme is “Reading Rocks”. In addition, this year we have chosen to celebrate summer reading with friends and family. Reading rocks….friends rock! This program is sponsored, in part, by The Friends of the Gilman Library, Alton Teachers Association, and River Run Deli, Alton, N.H.


Readers of all ages are encouraged to participate. Fill out your reading log starting Sunday, July 1st and ending Saturday, August 18th. Earn one raffle ticket for every hour you spend reading. Report your reading weekly.  Winners will be drawn at 1:00 PM on Saturday, August 18th. You do not need to be present to win.


This year’s raffle prizes are centered around our theme, “Reading Rocks…Friends Rock”. Stop by or visit our website and check out the prizes being awarded for a wonderful summer centered around reading with friends and family.  


To be one of our lucky winners, simply participate in our raffle by reading as much as you can. Reading alone or together counts. Print and electronic format welcome. Don’t forget to check out our guessing games and the joke of the week for more chances to win.
