Are you a fan of armchair travel?  Do you enjoy reading books set in other countries?  You can travel anywhere this summer by participating in Dublin Library’s summer reading program for adults, “Novel Destinations”.  Pick up your “passport” reading log at Dublin Library and keep track of the books you enjoy this summer.

Local Dublin merchants are generously supporting the program by donating gift cards for goods and services through Dublin.  Prizes include free pizzas and other restaurant gift meals; free bicycle tire repair from Dublin Cyclery,  free open- play bowling games at Dublin Bowl, and many more wonderful gifts offered by our own Dublin merchants. 

In “Novel Destinations,” your itinerary is to read or listen to 9 books whose plots are set in countries on at

 least 3 continents.  There are prizes for completing different stages of your journey.   The program begins June 13th and continues until August 13th

Read 3 books and win a  $3.00 OFF coupon for the next Friends of Dublin Library Book Sale, September 16 – 18.

Read 6 books and win a chance to spin the game prize spinner for a gift card from a local merchant.

Read 9 books or more and you will qualify to enter the  Grand Prize Drawing for a free e-Reader purchased by the Dublin Friends of the Library.
