The End of A Successful Adult Summer Reading Program!

Thank you everyone for your participation in this years Adult Summer Reading Program! We had the best year yet and can't wait until next time!

Friday night we hosted our Later In the Library: Books, Bingo, and Beer at Bowman Library where we welcomed 90 attendees to our Summer Reading Program Finale . The event included a visit from WINC FM, beer tastings with The Better Beer Store, a photo booth set up by DJ Repeatable, bingo, snacks, games, food truck Big Rig BBQ and much more! It was also the start of Library Card Sign Up Month so make sure to bring all your friends into the Library to get cards so that they can also participate in all the wonderful things our Library System has to offer.

In February we are doing an exciting brand new program, A Winter "Push Your Shelf" Challenge! Make sure to keep a look out for more announcements coming in January about how to participate.

Be sure to keep an eye out for next year's Adult Summer Reading Program and fun events to go along with it!

  • 435 People Registered
