Teen and Adult Summer Reading Program 2021

Starts June 1, 2021

Read just twenty minutes a day--bestsellers, the classics, science fiction, graphic novels, histories, romance--it’s up to you. No time for a book? Magazines and newspapers count as well. You can even read to a child, or have a child read to you! Books on CD count, too. Have you tried an e-book or a downloadable audiobook?

How it works: 

Stop by the library to pick up your ticket envelope. Then call the library to register and start reading. For each day you read at least 20 minutes, check off a box on your ticket. Reminder: check only one box each day to make reading a daily habit! Once one ticket is filled, move on to another one.  After all your tickets are filled, return your ticket envelope to the library. We will accept tickets July 19, 2021-July 30, 2021 for our prize drawings. Winners will have a chance to win $10 Culver’s gift certificates, and a $50 gift certificate will be drawn as the Grand Prize. All prizes will be drawn on August 2, 2021 at 1 p.m. Winners will be notified by phone.      

Call us at 929-3771 to register.
