Book Madness: Tournament of Authors

BracketThe library’s first Tournament of Authors is on! Pick up a bracket at the library or print your own Bracket (on 8.5 x 14 paper) to get in on the action.

The rules are pretty simple:

2.) Bring it in to the library to be initialed by a staff member before March 4, when Round 1 will be announced.

3.) Vote each round for your favorite authors! You can vote in the library (once per day), plus there will be additional ways to sneak in extra votes on Facebook!

As 2015 dawns, the library challenges you to make a positive change in your life. One way is to join the library’s 100 Book Club. Make it your New Year’s resolution to read more in 2015. The goal is to read or listen to 100 books between January 1 and December 31. Here’s how it works:

o Membership is open to readers 6 and up.
o Members must read or listen to the title themselves.
o You can join at any time during the year, but only titles completed before December 31 will count.
o Each title can only be counted once per calendar year.
o Paperbacks, hardbacks, large print, graphic novels, eBooks, audiobooks, and eAudiobooks count. Magazines and comic books do not count, nor do picture books that are read by patrons over the age of 10.
o Participants who have read 100 books in the calendar year must submit their reading logs to the library for verification. Once verified, these patrons will become Club Members and receive a club t-shirt, a membership card, and an invitation to DPL’s Annual 100 Book Club recognition reception.

Stop by the library beginning December 31, 2014 to pick up your personal reading log. Take the pledge to join the coolest and most prestigious book club around!
