Starting June 29, Sign Up Here! 

  • Every time you finish a book before August 15, log it with your account
  • For each book you read, the Library will mail you a bookmark
  • When you reach 5 books read, you will get a grocery (or book) bag.

No, you don’t have to read a full book to participate:

  • You can earn points by reading a picture book to a child, friend, or neighbor
  • You can earn points by reading magazines or newspapers (in 1 hour increments)
  • 4 of these activities can earn you the same points as 1 book.

The Adult Summer Reading Program will end Friday, August 14. Whoever earns the most reading points will get a First Prize! Everyone who participates over the summer will be entered in a drawing for other prizes!
