Adults

The adult summer reading program is changing to give adults more ways to participate while exploring the library and its resources. Adults complete challenges throughout the summer. Challenges include reading, using library resources, and attending events.

Keep track of challenges on the Adult Summer Reading Remix log. (Download)

For help with some challenges, check out a couple of librarian-prepared reading lists here:

When an adult has completed any 3 challenges, they earn their first entry into a branch prize drawing. They earn another entry for each additional challenge they complete by July 28th. For those who complete every challenge on the log (and return the log to their branch), they will receive 2 extra entries, giving them a total of 15 entries into the drawing.
