Adult Summer Reading Challenge

adult summer reading!

Welcome to the 2014 Summer Reading Challenge for adults: the best incentive you’ll find for sitting down with a few great books this summer. Here’s how it works:

  • This year we are asking readers to read five books between June 30 and August 13 (the same dates as the kids program, so you can do it as a family).
  • Sign up begins June 2nd.
  • All who sign up get coupons for a free Marble House tour, discounts at Newport Art Museum, and more.
  • Those who complete five books by August 13 will be entered into the grand prize drawing.

To participate in the Summer Reading Challenge you have to be a grown up (over 18), have a library card, and be able to enjoy plowing through five books in six weeks. If that sounds like you, stop by the reference desk to sign up, or register online.

Once the reading challenge starts on June 30th, how do you keep track of the books you’ve read?
Two ways: 1) Fill out the reading log on the back of our summer reading brochure (available at the reference desk), and bring that in by closing on August 13th.
2) Fill out the online “I Read a Book!” form for each book, and we’ll keep track of your progress for you.

The only thing you have to come into the library to get are the coupons (and the prizes, if you win one). Happy reading!
