    NEWTON — During February, adults ages 18 and older can earn one raffle ticket for each book read or listened to during the Sussex County Library System’s “Blind Date with a Book” Winter Reading Raffle. One lucky winner at each Branch will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.
    February will be full of surprises as staff wrap and place books at each location for patrons to check out on a blind date. “No matter what, you’re a winner!” exclaimed Adult Services Librarian Louisa Bann. “Love the book? You’re an instant winner because you’ve just read a wonderful book. Hate the book? You can fill out a raffle ticket anyway. And check out another book! No guilt or lawyer fees involved.”
    Entries are not restricted to the “blind date” books, one raffle ticket may be entered for each book read during the contest period, February 1-28.
    Participants must be Sussex County Library cardholders. All raffle tickets must be turned in by February 28. Winners will be announced in early March.
