Summer Reading isn’t just for kids…
Adult Summer Reading Club
Friday, June 14 through Friday, July 26, 2019
How the Summer Reading Club works:
- Fill out a bookmark entry for each book read.
- You can also fill out a bookmark entry for each adult library program you attend.
- Return completed bookmarks to the box by the Adult Information Desk by July 26.
It’s that easy! The more you read and the more library programs you attend, the better your chances of winning a Mr. Paul’s Chop House gift certificate and more!
Programs: There will be a number of interesting programs for adults this summer, so join us for one or more!
