2019 Adult Summer Reading Program

A Universe of Stories

June 17–August 3, 2019

Registration begins Monday, June 17,
at the Reference Desk in the Adult Department.

Simply track the time you spend reading this summer on your Reading Record (printable PDF) by coloring or marking off one hour increments of reading.

Read or listen to books, audiobooks, magazines,
or newspapers in print or digital format.

For a chance to win weekly prizes, submit Mini Book Reviews (printable PDF form) on the great things you read this summer!

All participants who complete 30 hours of reading
and turn in their Reading Records by Saturday, August 3,
will be entered into our Grand Prize drawing
for a telescope and other great prizes.

For more fun throughout the summer, join us for a variety of
Adult Activites and Activities for All Ages!
Registration is required for most activities.
