Adult Summer Reading Program

Adults are invited to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Program. Interested participants may register online with Beanstack (paper book reviews and game sheets will be available for those who prefer that option) and will be eligible to receive a complimentary paperback prize book (while supplies last). Once registered, begin tracking every 20 minutes of reading/listening (books, eBooks, BOCs, 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 up to 6 entries.
