Winter ReadFest Returns to Metropolitan Library System

One of Oklahoma County’s favorite cold weather traditions returns to your Metropolitan Library System February 1 through March 31.

            It’s The Lifetime Reader’s Society’s Winter ReadFest, the 2009 edition.  The two-month long event is for readers aged 55 and older.

            “ReadFest in 2009 is like it’s been since we began it in 2004,” said MLS Senior Services Coordinator Anita Roesler.  “It’s the chance for senior readers to win prizes for doing what they already love to do—read!

            “And we’ve lined up some great prizes this time, including books, gift cards, even tickets to an OKC Thunder game for the basketball fans.”

            Roesler says that the rules are simple:

  •                     Visit your favorite library
  •                     Complete the registration form
  •                     Turn it in and receive a signup gift
  •                     Read or listen to four books before March 31
  •                     Sign a prize entry form at your library

 “And most importantly of all,” Roesler added, “have some fun.”

            Sign-up for Lifetime Reader’s Society’s Winter ReadFest 2009 begins on Feb. 1 at your favorite library.  For more information, call Anita Roesler at 606-3835.
