Adult Summer Reading Program 2024

Adult Summer Reading Program

The Adult Summer Reading Program is the perfect excuse to take back your reading time. Join us for a summer of reading, relaxation, and recharging — June 8 to July 27.

Adults are invited to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Program. Register online with Beanstack and you will earn a prize book that you can pick up at any NBPL location (while supplies last). A paper option will be available at the library for those who prefer it.

Once registered, begin tracking every 20 minutes of reading or listening (books, eBooks, books on CD, eAudiobooks, magazines, eMagazines, newspapers, and eNewpapers are all fair game!).

Every 100 minutes read earns you an entry ticket into the grand prize drawing at the end of the program, with the chance to earn 6 entries for 600 minutes read and a bonus entry for completing the program!

Weekly Prize Drawings

Submit book reviews and complete activities for entries into weekly prize drawings! Winners will receive a $10 gift card to Peet's Coffee, Bristol Farms, Jan's Health Bar, See's Candies, Ruby’s Diner, Kean Coffee, or Salt & Straw Ice Cream!

Grand Prize Drawing

The Grand Prize Drawing will be run on Monday, July 29. The winner will receive a $50 Fashion Island gift card!
