Ascension Parish Library

Why let the kids have all the fun? Summer reading is not just for kids; get the whole family involved.  Join the adult summer reading program at the Ascension Parish Library… Booklover’s Summer.

•    Beginning May 24, stop by your local Ascension Parish Library for a Booklover’s Summer entry form.

•    Read or listen to three books between May 24 and July 31, 2016.

•    Record the titles and authors; tell us if you liked the books or not and why.  

•    When you submit your first entry form at any library location of the Ascension Parish Library, you will receive a completion prize – an Ascension Parish Library Tote Bag.  One tote bag per reader, while supplies last.    

Entry form automatically enters you into a Grand Prize drawing for a chance to win the Old Fashioned Ice Cream Grand Prize featuring an Elite Gourmet 4 Quart Old Fashioned Ice Cream Maker, hand-crafted with solid pine wood bucket, a 90 rpm motor for efficient churning, a die-cast hand crank for manual operation, and a 6-fin paddle for thorough mixing.  The prize also includes a copy of The Ultimate Ice Cream Book:  Over 500 Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, Drinks and More by Bruce Weinstein and ice cream accessories to include ice cream bowls, spoons, and an ice cream scoop.  An assortment of ice cream making toppings will also be included.  You won’t be able to resist this wonderful treat!  One grand prize per person.  (One drawing at each library location on August 1.)
