Adult Programming

Summer Reading Program

June 4 – July 21

  • The adult summer reading program is open to anyone age 18 or older.
  • Check out reading material from any of our four locations – books, magazines, ebooks, and audio books all count!  Please enjoy our DVD collection, but it does not count toward the summer reading program.
  • Receive one NOTE card for each item checked out between June 4 – July 21.  Please ask a staff member for NOTE cards for ebooks you have downloaded through Overdrive.
  • Fill out the NOTE card completely and include a sentence describing what you thought of the book – examples:
    • “This book really made me appreciate living in a small town.”
    • “This book was fast-paced and intense!”
    • “It was too gory for me. Yuck!”
  • Return your completed NOTE cards to the library and place them in the prize box of your choice by closing time on Saturday, July 28, 2018.
  • NOTE cards from all locations will be combined before winners are drawn.  NOTE cards will be drawn and winners notified by August 11, 2018.

Summer Instant Winners

June 4 – July 21

Some of our books, magazines, audio books, and DVDs will be secretly marked as instant winners.  If you happen to be the lucky person who checks out one of these items, you will be given a prize on the spot!  The more items checked out, the more chances you have to win.
