We have reached the final week of Summer. Read. 2014. BUT… this is no time to lament the departure of what is, for Albertans, an all-too unfamiliar friend, or to unpack your seasonal fall yoga pants. This simply means you have got one more week to read like mad and get some more ballots in for the Summer. Read. 2014 grand prize draw!
Calgary Public Library has three iPad Minis to give away, so if you can’t wait to toss aside that ballot-stuffing paperback and boot up the Angry Birds app for 12 consecutive hours, get those ballots in. Remember that ballots can be submitted at any Calgary Public Library location or online.
I remind you that reading (print books, eBooks, magazines etc.), viewing (DVDs, Blu-Rays etc.), or listening (audiobooks, eAudiobooks, MP3 books), can all count towards Summer. Read. If you haven’t started participating yet, it isn’t too late to get on board; or, if you already have a War & Peace sized stack of ballots in, this is your opportunity to make that final push.
