Adult Summer Reading  June 1st - August 26th

Adult Summer Reading
June 1st – August 26th

Join us for a fun summer of activities with the Adult Summer Reading. Start with the Reading Log that is available at the Info Desk along with a bookmark. ADULTS can earn a Treasure Box Choice for completing the reading log portion of the summer reading club. We encourage the reading of books, audiobooks and ebooks for the reading log.

 Fill in the Reading Log (12 Books) to choose a cool gift out of the Adult Treasure Box  PLUS it is an entry in the  Book Prize Drawing for more cool stuff.  Adults will have 3 chances to enter 3 different prize drawings, as many times as they want to but only one Treasure Box Prize.

The Summer Reading program is highlighting “BUILD A BETTER WORLD” through the Library in 3 different areas, “BUILD A BETTER” COMMUNITY, “BUILD A BETTER” BRAIN BOOK LOG & “BUILD A BETTER” YOU by attending events, community activities, exercising your body and mind, which increases your ability to enter the Prize Drawings as many times as you can.
