Play Bookopoly, an adult summer reading program

Summer reading programs aren't just for children. Willard invites adults to play Bookopoly this summer. Pick up a game card from either library and start reading your way around the game board.

Bookopoly is modeled on a Monopoly game. Participants can check off board squares under the topics favorites; new; quick read; expand a comfort zone; outside reading; people; nonfiction; and technology and apps.
 
Completed cards should be dropped off at either library by Sept. 5. Cards will be placed in a random drawing. The grand prize will be a $50 gift card to Barnes & Noble and a Willard Library tote bag. The first runner-up prize will be a $25 gift card to Battle Creek Books and a tote bag. The second runner-up prize will be a $25 gift card to Battle Creek Books.
 
Participants must have a Willard Library card, and only one entry is allowed per person.
