Adult Summer Reading Program

Literary Elements

Jun 8 - August 15, 2014

Registration starts on June 8. You can register at the Library or online.

How it works…

  • This program is open to readers ages 18 and up. Sign up at the library. Read or listen to fiction or non-fiction.
  • Complete a prize entry form for each book you finish.  Fill out two entry forms for books 500 pages or longer. Entries may be turned in at the library’s Information desk between June 8 and August 23, 2015.
  • Each week two completed entries will be drawn for the weekly drawings. (One weekly prize per person).  Weekly drawings begin Monday, June 15th.  All entries not drawn for weekly prizes are eligible for the grand prize drawings.  Grand prizes will be drawn Tuesday, August 18th.  Winners will be notified.
  • Parents/guardians reading to children can count the same hours of reading toward books in the adult program.  Each Mission File equals one book (one entry form).

Grand Prizes are themed gift baskets.
