Adults (Ages 18+) Paper Challenge

Join us by participating in the Adult Summer Reading Road Trip. Register online or by stopping at the Reference Desk. 

Beach reads, cozy mysteries, and thrillers are available for adult reading during summer. Adults look forward to summer as much as kids do. They can relax, take vacations, and catch up on reading, which makes summer a great time to offer special programming for adults.

Our goal is to help families foster a love of reading in their children, aiding in building vocabulary and language skills. We hope you have a fantastic time participating in the club!

The Challenge ends on August 3.
