Summer Reading Program for Adults

Why should kids have all the fun? Sit back and enjoy the magical days of summer with a good book.  Join our summer reading challenge – this one’s for adults! and win fabulous prizes exploring new places, people, and pastimes!

How it Works:  Choose any book and start racking up raffle tickets.  Each book you complete gets you one ticket, so the more you read, the greater your chances of winning.  Score even more raffle tickets by attending a fun activity, watching a great film, or getting hooked on something new, like a “podcast.”  Summer’s possibilities are endless! 

Registration & Eligibility:  It’s easy. Just register at the library starting on June 13. To be eligible for prizes, you must complete at least one book. We are standing by to help you find that perfect read to while away those heavenly (or dog days!) of summer.
