Grounded in Reading

Monday, June 10th - Sunday, August 18th, 2012.


Like last year, you can post reviews of books online and be eligible for prizes.  This year you will also be able to comment on reviews by other readers.  And, if you like, you can post your summer reading activity on your Facebook page.

To participate, go to the Library Summer Reading site.  Click on the Grounded in Reading (Adults) tab on the far right.   The first time you visit this page, click on Sign Me Up.  After that, you will log in with your user name and password using the Login button.

You can set up your account any time beginning June 10th, 2013.  You can begin entering book reviews on June 24th.  You will need the title and author of the book you are reviewing.  If you enter the ISBN (the long number on the back of most books), you will see the book cover along with your review.  The program will end on Sunday, August 18th.

The landing page will show the six most-recent book reviews entered by readers.  You will be able to see all book reviews by clicking on “View All Reviews.”  You will be able to search reviews using the search boxes that appear when you click “View All Reviews.”  Please note that your user name will not appear next to your review or comments.

To win awards and prizes:

Enter three book reviews to be eligible for the first reader's award. Enter three more reviews and you will be eligible for the second reader's award. Awards will be available as long as supplies last.  Beginning July 1st, random drawings will be held each week for a gift card. On August 19th a random drawing will be held for the grand prize! You only need to enter one review to be eligible for the gift card drawings and grand prize, but the more reviews you enter the better your chances!  You will be notified by email if you are a prize winner.

If you have questions, please contact the Adult Services Desk at 860-257-2811.  Wethersfield Library is located at 515 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield CT 06109.
