2021 Adult Summer Reading Program

It’s time for another summer of great reading and great prizes! This year’s program runs from Monday, June 21 through Friday, August 13. Weekly prizes are drawn every Monday starting June 28, and the grand prize will be drawn on Monday, August 16.

It’s easy to participate. The program is open to anyone ages 12 and up. Each adult or young adult book you read (audiobooks and e-books count, too) entitles you to enter your name for a drawing.* See the official rules here.

You can earn additional drawing entries by participating in events at the library. Plus, earn an extra drawing entry for each coloring sheet you complete and turn in at our front desk – pick them up in person at the library, or click here to download them!

Click here to register for the program online, or visit the library to register in person. 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.

*All prizes must be picked up from the library in person.
