Adult Summer Reading

Discover how our library rocks through our summer reading program! Sign up online or at the library starting June 18. Or sign up at our Sock Hop kick-off event on June 22. You’ll get a gift for registering; earn a prize for completing our reading and activity challenges, and be entered to win weekly giveaways.

When does the Adult Summer Reading program start?

Signups start on June 18. The program begins the week of June 26.

How do I sign up?

You can easily sign up online here (coming soon). You can also sign up at our library's Circulation Desk, or at the Summer Reading kick-off event on June 18.

What do I have to do?

Read, listen to, or watch 3 items throughout the summer.

And try out an extra summer goal.  Complete 1 of them.

  • Write a review of an item you read or watched.

  • Attend a library program.

  • Try a new rock or music artist and share your thoughts on their work

  • Create something with rocks or stones (rock decorations, garden stones, rock structures, etc. or anything else you can think of!).  Submit a photo of what you created.

  • Share about a person you consider a rock of your family, or about a place you consider a rock/pillar of our our community.

  • Think of a way the library has helped you have some summer fun, and post about it on the library Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat page.

  • Take a crack at this rock trivia question…Can you name the only type of rock that floats?  It’s lightweight, means ‘foam’ in Latin, and will eventually sink if left in water for a long period of time.

  • Technology rocks!  Try a new device, tool, or technology trend that interests you.

Then, submit your completion form by Thursday August 2.

By completing the form, you’ll get a cool library tote and be entered for a chance to win the grand prize!

What can I win?

Great gift cards to local restaurants, concert tickets, hot new technology devices, or an overnight getaway to the Poconos as the final grand prize.  Drawings will be held every Friday.
