Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Win a Kindle Fire at the Truckee Library
Join the delighted folks who use the libraries for summer reading, children’s and adult programs, free e-book and downloadable audiobook access, instructional and playful database access, and all the serious or recreational reading you desire, by getting yourself a library card.
And, help your budget by avoiding payments to Amazon, iTunes or any vendor for reading—let the libraries provide you with your information needs.
Now through the end of July, when you sign up for your first Nevada County Community Library card at the Truckee Library — or any of the Nevada County Libraries — you’ll enter a drawing for a Kindle Fire! Four drawings will occur over the summer, so you’ll have more than one chance to win.
You could be a lucky winner, but you can be sure that your library card is a sure-fire key to long-range and incalculable treasure. Visit your library soon to take advantage; we’ll be glad to welcome you.
