June Summer Blog Giveaway Winner!

June is already over!  And so is our second blog giveaway post of the summer!  The winner for the June Summer Blog Giveaway is:

Lili A. who said that the best book she’s read in the last year was The Perfect Cut by Julie Burtinshaw.  Interested in the book?  Here’s a blurb from Goodreads:

After the death of his tough, guitar-playing, much-loved sister, Michelle, Brian finds it increasingly difficult to care about anything. He doesn’t care about his parents. He doesn’t care about his friends. He doesn’t care about school. He just doesn’t care anymore. The only time Brian comes alive is in the few seconds it takes for the razor to slice through his skin. But he never cuts deep enough to cause any real damage. At least, not yet…

Definitely sounds intense!  You can check out The Perfect Cut from WCL.

Congratulations Lili, and everyone stayed tuned for another chance to win a $15.00 Chapters Gift Card in our July Blog Giveaway, which will be up later this week!

Countdown to Teen SRC!

It’s that time of year again…Wellington County Library’s Teen Summer Reading Challenge starts on June 18th!

If you don’t already know, here’s a little about the Teen SRC:

The TeenSRC is all about reading­­.  And prizes.  For every book/audiobook/graphic novel/magazine/e-book that you read/listen to over the summer, you’ll get a ballot.  And every ballot gets entered into a draw for one of our 15 Grand Prizes.

This year, the prizes are as follows: someone from each branch will win a $25.00 Chapters Gift Card, and 1 teen from Wellington County will win a Kobo Touch e-reader. 

These prizes are in addition to the prizes from the Summer Blog Giveaways!  So there are tons of chances to win.

The TeenSRC runs from June 18th – August 11th, and to sign up, just visit your local library branch.

Plus, this year we’ve got a little something extra.  When you sign-up for the TeenSRC this summer, you’ll also get a Teen Library Bingo Card.  On it, you’ll find tasks to do, such as suggesting a new teen programme for the library, downloading a library e-book, and even visiting the blog!  For every line you complete, you’ll get extra ballots towards the grand prize.

So don’t miss this summer’s Teen Summer Reading Challenge!  Lots of chances for you to win something cool, all just for reading whatever you want.  Registration begins June 18th, so make sure to visit your library branch then, and sign-up.

Plus, keep your eye on the blog for the June Summer Blog Giveaway post, coming soon!
