The Adult Services Department of the Bermuda National Library is sponsoring its annual Summer Reading Programme – Read Around the Rock – it started on June 30th and will continue until August 16th, 2014. There is still time to sign up and complete the programme. The summer reading programme is designed to learn more about our island home in a light-hearted way. Adults can choose from books that give insight to interesting facts and folklore about the nine parishes from the St. George’s ‘stock market’ selection and ‘fish’ for your Sandys Heritage choice from the’ library depths.’ The remaining seven parishes will represent specific subject areas of the library collection.
Julie Bean, Public Services Librarian says, “Registrations increase with each summer and winter programme, participants report that they have enjoyed the challenge.” She adds, “this year we have added e-books, e-audiobooks and e-music to the materials selection. Sign up is easy and registration at the Library on Queen Street.” The programme is free and open to residents over 14 years of age and there will be weekly prizes and a final grand prize.
Previous participants are invited to get on board. If you have not visited your library lately, stop by and learn what we have to offer. Read Around the Rock participants have expressed that they are having fun with our programme with a twist this year.
