Who's the Club For?

The Adult Reading Club is for everyone who is age 18 and older. Reading is a great activity to engage in year round, but only in the summer will you have the chance to win some great prizes.  Even better, you can do so by doing what patrons do best, reading books and coming out to our programming.
When's the Reading Club & How Do I Join?

The Adult Summer Reading Club will run June 5 - July 28.  During this time, visit any library location to pick up your reading club information, then visit us to checkout books and attend summer programming so you can be a part of the summer reading club fun in the community.

Prizes for Your Participation!

As an incentive for reading, or participating in our adult programming, you'll be able to submit them for a chance to enter our regular Prize Drawings throughout the summer. The more tickets you turn in, the more chances you have to win.
