Please stop in to use our wireless internet access, do research, check out a best-seller, or attend a program soon. Don’t have a card? Stop at the front desk, introduce yourself as a new borrower, and we will get you a card. The Bigelow Free Public Library is an original Carnegie Library, so while you are visiting, take a minute to appreciate the unique features and architecture.
What is it? An opportunity for adults (18 and over) to read books and win prizes.
Who can participate? Adult patrons (18 and over) who have a Bigelow Free Public Library card. If you don’t have a card, ask at the front desk to get one today.
What can I read? Any paper book, e-book, or audiobook. Books that you read to or with your children count too! Every five children’s books you read count as one adult book.
How does it work? Read or listen to any books of your choice. For each book (or five children’s books if you’re reading with your children) you finish, complete one entry form. Entry forms are available at the library. A short review (one or two sentences) is encouraged, but not required. Book reviews may be published in the library for others to read. Names will be omitted from posted reviews.
Each completed form is eligible for entry into a drawing for a variety of prizes. The available prizes will be displayed at the Circulation Desk. All drawing entries will also be entered into the grand prize drawing for an eReader. The more you read, the better your chances are to win! Winners will be notified by phone or e-mail.
Entries will be accepted at the library between June 25 – August 9. All drawings will take place on August 13.
How do I sign up? There is no formal sign-up, but the first 50 patrons to turn in an entry form will receive a book bag!
For more information, call the Library at 978-365-4160 or stop by the front desk.
