Summer Reading - Explore...Escape...Enlighten...Enjoy
Goodall Memorial Library’s third annual Adult Summer Reading Program runs from June 17 to August 23. Adults and teens are all welcome to join.
This year's theme is: Books & Movies ~ Entertainment at its best.
Earn one point for each book read - from our list of Sanford Suggestions OR read any book of your choice - write a short description of your favorites. (Your recommendation may be used in an upcoming edition of Sanford Suggestions, the library’s publication of patron and staff favorites.)
Each point = one ticket with your name on it into the raffle for our Sanford Reader's Basket, including two books and corresponding DVDs (The Hobbit and The Hunger Games), popcorn and candy, and a $25 Amazon.com gift certificate
Basket winner will be drawn Friday August 23rd.
Have you ever wanted to try a Kindle? You now have that opportunity at Goodall Library. Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor, the library has purchased four Kindle Touch e-readers for lending.
Kindles are available to adult patrons who possess a library card in good standing and a current and valid picture ID.
All four Kindles are pre-loaded with some classic titles for you to read and to test various features and options. This is a great opportunity for those who would like to try one out before purchasing one for themselves!
