Good afternoon,

Are you excited for Bookworm? I am! Bookworm is CRCPL's summer reading program, and we have a fun program in store for Adults this year. As we have in the past, we'll be asking for your book reviews over the summer. Each book review you log online will earn you an entry in our weekly prize drawing. This year though, you can "complete" Bookworm by submitting 5 book reviews, and that will earn you a button, and entry into the Grand Prize drawing for a Kindle Fire.

Bookworm BINGO is also back by popular demand this summer. Each BINGO you complete will earn you an entry into our community prize drawings at the end of Bookworm. If you fill your entire card, you'll also earn a completion button, and entry into the Grand Prize drawing for a Kindle Fire.

Logging starts June 4, but you can pre-register here now so you're ready to go. If you had an account last year, please use the same log in information. (We can help get you back into your account at the library, if you've forgotten your information.) 

I'll see you at the library!
