The  Adult Summer Reading Program is for any adult ages 18 and above who have a library card (internet only cards are also eligible). If you don't have a card yet come on down to any of our locations and we can set you up.

What you need to know after you register:

· Keep a log of books that you read between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Reading Logs are provided at all Information Desks. (If you register online your first Reading Log will be emailed to you.)

· Receive a Book Buck* for each of the first 5 books read. (If you read less than five still turn in your first log to get Book Bucks for the books you have read.) For each additional Reading Log earn 2 Book Bucks!

· For every 5 books you read, fill out and return your Reading Log to an Information Desk to be entered into the drawing for prizes and to get your book bucks.

· Return completed Reading Logs by noon on September 3rd to be eligible for prize drawings.

· Watch our website and postings at our locations for additional information & special related adult programming.

· *What is A Book Buck? A Book Buck is equivalent to $1 to spend in our Summer and Fall 2019 Book Sale at Bowman Library put on by the Friends of the Library.
