Summer Reading Programs

Adults
The 2021 Adult Summer Reading Challenge starts on June 7 and ends August 15. Adults 18 years old and up can see how many books they can read and enter the drawing for prizes to be given away at the end of the summer! Those who read the most books will win fun prizes, but anyone who reads and records even one book is entered into our drawings.  

This year, registration is online beginning June 7 here.

To record each book you read this summer, you can visit here.
