Curl Up With a Good Book (Adult Winter Reading Program)

Adult Winter Reading Program 2022

Running from January 10, 2022 through April 10, 2022, Bossard Library's Adult Winter Reading Program, "Curl Up With a Good Book", offers our adult patrons the opportunity to win prizes by reading and/or listening to their favorite books.

Participants who read/listen to 10 books will receive their choice of either a 6-can cooler or a large canvas Bossard Library book bag. (While supplies last)

For every book read, participants will earn a ticket for a chance to win one of 6 themed baskets, with a maximum of 25 tickets per participant.

Each basket contains items worth up to between $85-$100.

Tickets may be used on as many or as few of the six baskets as a participant chooses. The more tickets you drop in a bag in front of your favorite basket, the more chances you have to win. 

Baskets are available to be viewed on the table near the main entrance. The six themes are:

  • Next Christmas -- items for your next Christmas celebration.
  • Chocolate Makes Everything Better -- items related to chocolate.
  • Game On -- board, card, and dice games.
  • Puzzle It Out -- jigsaw puzzles and a jigsaw puzzle mat and accessories.
  • Adventure Awaits -- Items used for an outdoor adventure.
  • The Pleasures of Reading -- items for a relaxing reading day.

Only books and audiobooks borrowed from Bossard Library will count for tickets and prizes. E-books and digital audiobooks borrowed from the Ohio Digital Library and Hoopla are also eligible.

April 10 is the last day to receive the 10-book prize or place tickets in the bags. The drawing for winners of the baskets will be held the afternoon of April 11 and winners will be notified by phone.

The registration sheet and reading logs are located on the podium near the prize table at the main entrance.

You may also contact Lynn via phone/e-mail and receive an e-mail with a copy of the reading log to download and print out (PDF format).

When you finish a book/books, stop by the front desk with your reading log to have a member of the staff check off the number of books completed.

Please note: You MUST have your reading log with you in order to receive your 10-book prize or any tickets earned.

A valid Bossard Library card is required to participate in this program.

As winter descends upon us, we encourage you to curl up and read some good books.

Stop by the Library to register and pick up your reading log today.
