NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Summer reading for adults is in full swing at the New Providence Memorial Library.
There are no reading lists or required reading. Instead, the library initiates a discussion question each week and asks patrons to respond based on what they are reading or have recently read. There is a weekly prize drawing from among all the week's participants and each participant is entered into a grand prizing drawing at the end of the contest which runs until July 31. Prizes are mostly $10 gift cards to New Providence businesses such as A&P, NP Florist, Paolo's, McGrath's & Tables for Two. Grand prizes are gift cards to NP Fuel & Skin Deep Spa as well as a gift basket from Starbuck's.
Look for discussion questions either on GoodReads -- the group is NPML Online Reading Group -- or find the group on Facebook or just do it the old-fashioned way with a form from the white basket on the Circulation Desk.
Next up, for the month of July, the library is running a Science Fiction Movie Fest. The library will be showing four movies throughout the month: Metropolis; Earth vs. the Flying Saucers; Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Robocop. See www.newprovidencelibrary.org for details on dates and times.
