Get Caught Read Handed by the St. Louis Public Library

Julie E., one of my dear friends and a great writer, works for the St. Louis Public Library. Yesterday Julie e-mailed a press release about a really cool incentive the library has going on for the next few weeks The program is called: Get Caught Read Handed! (I've downloaded their logo on the left.)

Here's information from the library's press release:

"Grab a book and head out on the town, because you could get Caught Read Handed! The St. Louis Public Library will take to the streets March 15th - April 9th between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., looking to catch people reading.

"If we see you reading, you will be entered to win great prizes, including a St. Louis Sports package, a St. Louis Arts package, and a Central West End Getaway. This exciting contest is the Library's way of getting St. Louis ready for National Library Week (April 11-17).

"Each day beginning March 15th, check out the Library at Facebook, MySpace and Twitter for clues on where you can get Caught Read Handed!"

Personal note: Now that I'm retired I don't cross the river very often, although I did get into the city for a bus tour of Stained Glass Windows and Churches on Tuesday, but it might be worth the trip to drive across the river with a book.

Today in St. Peters, MO: Chance of rain, high 50 degrees.


  1. Maybe our local library will take a hint and try the same thing here!

  2. Hi Pat,
    That would be great, wouldn't it!

  3. How fun! Hope you get caught read handed and win a prize! I'm originally from central Illinois and very familiar with St. Pete. Oh do I ever miss those rivers!

  4. Hi Karen,
    With all the rain we've been having, our rivers are rising; hope they don't flood.
