Adult Summer Reading Program

Back for the 4th year is our Adult Summer Reading Program! This year’s theme is “Libraries Rock!”

Sign up at or at the Service Desk and receive a raffle booklet full of activities. For every five tickets completed you will get your choice of a book from our Book Nook, and for every ticket you complete, your name will be entered into a raffle that will be drawn at the end of the summer reading program. There will be three prize baskets to choose from: a Gardening Basket; a Handyman Basket; and a Go Green/Recycling Basket. Participants chosen will get their pick of basket based on the order in which they were drawn.

You do not need to be present to win; however, participants who are present at the time of drawing will get first pick of the baskets. All baskets will be on display at the library. The Adult Summer Reading Program will run from June 10 – August 10, 2018.
