We now have two grand prizes for the end of the Adult Summer Reading Program. First: a Sony E-Book Reader donated by Sony. This E-Reader is totally compatible with the free downloadable e-books available from Overdrive. Second: Tickets to see Le Rêve donated by Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. The winner will receive a coupon from Wynn Resorts and instructions to redeem the coupon for 4 tickets to see the show Le Rêve (French for “The Dream”) at the Wynn.
