Mayor Peter Brown was caught reading at Airdrie Public Library yesterday, and got booked.

"You're Booked" is in it's final year of a three year initiative, recognizing and rewarding those caught reading a book, magazine or newspaper at the APL, or one of the participating schools in Airdrie.

Donna Lohnes, Adult Services Manager with the library says it's not about getting people into the library, it's about getting people to read.

Mayor Brown likes what he sees from the program.

Anyone ‘booked’ between October 3 and October 9 receives an entry form to drop off at the library for an opportunity to win a prize.
