2019 Adult Summer Reading Program


It’s time for another summer of great reading and great prizes! This year’s program runs from Monday, June 24 through Friday, August 16. Weekly prizes are drawn every Monday starting July 1, and the grand prize will be drawn on Monday, August 19.

It’s easy to participate. The program is open to all PFPL cardholders high school age and up. Each book you read from the adult collection (audiobooks and e-books count, too) entitles you to enter your name for a drawing. See the official rules here.

Beginning June 24, you can register for the program online or at the library. Paper entries will be available at the library, or you can submit your entry online. Optionally, add a review of what you’ve read and we’ll share it in our weekly summer reading e-newsletter.
