You can still read your way to win. The New Westminster Public Library's summer reading program for adults, A Taste of Reading, has been extended until Aug. 31.
The program has been running since July 2. All you have to do is read as much as you want - anywhere you want - and let us know your favourite books. They could include fiction, mystery, nonfiction, thriller, fantasy or something you read as a child. Entry forms are available in the library or online at www.nwpl.ca. A list of New Westminster's favourite reads will be posted after the contest.
New Westminster businesses have generously donated prizes for the reading club. The library thanks Around the World, Boathouse Restaurant, Cockney Kings Fish & Chips, Couzies, Great Wall Tea Co., Kin's Farm Market, Moody Beads, Old Spaghetti Factory, The Pantry, Sushi Paradise and West Coast College of Massage Therapy. The library has also donated a Kobo eReader as a prize.
Another way to win a prize is by answering the weekly trivia questions.
Ballots, along with more clues, are also in the library and on www.nwpl.ca.
