Adult Reading Challenge

The Elgin Library Foundation is sponsoring an Adult Reading Challenge from September until February.  To join the challenge a one time fee of $20 is required.  Payment of this fee enters your name into a drawing to take place February 28, 2014.  During the six month time period, each time you finish a book from Elgin Public Library  you may enter your name again.  The more you read the more chances you have to win the prize, an iPad!  But remember it only takes one entry to win and you will be donating to a good cause-your local library!
