Adult Summer Library Program
Let’s set the record straight! The summer reading program for adults is NOT a book club. In fact, you don’t have to read anything you don’t want to. You don’t have to come to a discussion group. You can read as much or as little as you want, read what you want or listen to a book on CD. You can finish one book a week to enter to win prizes or just finish one book all summer to get a chance to win the grand prize. Weekly prizes include gift cards to local businesses. The grand prize will be a tote bag and a Kindle Paperwhite! The theme this year is “Literary Elements”.
Sign up begins Monday, June 9. The first prize drawing will be Friday, June 20. The program ends Saturday, August 2, with the grand prize drawing on Monday, August 4. So, do or don’t sign up. But, remember, if you do, this could be your lucky summer!
All guest programs are free, and registration is not required, unless noted otherwise. Call the Youth Desk at 532-8915 if more information is needed.
