CALS Celebrates 2013 with New Year, New Reads
The public is encouraged to ‘read in’ the new year with the Central Arkansas Library System’s (CALS) adult winter reading program entitled “New Year, New Reads.” From Jan. 7 through March 2 patrons may read or listen to any book they choose and then submit reviews one of three ways: at the branch, via email to NewYearNewReads@cals.org, or on Twitter using the hashtag #NewYearNewReads.
Each branch will display the reviews submitted at their branch, and most branches will have drawings for door prizes from the reviews received. Each branch will determine the rules and prizes for their contest.
A prize of a Kindle Fire will be awarded for the Most Creative Book Review of all entries submitted online. Reviewers tweeting or emailing reviews of no more than 140 characters will be entered into the contest.
Readers can pick up reading suggestion bookmarks and review cards at the circulation desk of any CALS branch. The program is free and open to the public.
