Adult Summer Reading 2023!

Summer is just right around the corner, which means it’s time to get ready to read! Our Summer Reading program starts next week; our theme is ALL TOGETHER NOW, and we’ve designed some fun activities and reading challenges for all-ages.


You might ask why we have created a Summer Reading program for Adults. Well, first of all, since we’ve got fun and games for the kiddos, we don’t want any of the adults to feel left out! Adults can also use some encouragement to read during the summer – for rest and relaxation, for stress relief, or out of curiosity (read whatever you want!). And, finally, modeling reading for the young people in your life can help them get hooked on reading as well. It’s a win-win situation!


And, speaking of winning, participating in this year’s program will earn you tickets, which go into our drawing for some great prizes. How to get started? Check out the Adult Summer Reading flyer, stop in for an event or two, and do some reading. Totally easy to do, even if you’re summer is “booked.”
