What’s New · Be a Friend to Books Winners

Kathy Moore Grand Prize winner Kathy Moore

Booklovers came out of their homes and into the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County to be a friend to books this fall. Nearly 1,000 readers joined a new book club designed especially for adults. In just six short weeks, they paged through nearly 5,000 books!

Every participant who completed one entry form by reading or listening to three books received a coupon good for $5 off of a $10 purchase at an upcoming Friends of the Public Library or Anderson Township Library Association used book sale. Each of the Library’s 41 locations then held a Grand Prize Drawing to give one lucky reader a $25 gift certificate to one of the upcoming used book sales.

But the story didn’t end there. Kathy Moore of Colerain Township won the Be a Friend to Books Ultimate Grand Prize: a $100 gift card courtesy of Borders Books, a complimentary one-year membership to the Friends of the Public Library, and an invitation for two to the Books by the Banks: Cincinnati USA Book Festival VIP author reception on Friday evening, October 31. “I love the library and all of the services it provides for me and my kids!” she said. Kathy’s name was selected in a random drawing of all of the entries received at all Library locations.

Financial support for Be a Friend to Books was provided by the Friends of the Public Library and the Anderson Township Library Association (ATLA).
