Welcome to the Adult Summer Reading Challenge – the best incentive you’ll find for sitting down with a few great books this summer!
Here’s how it works:
- Pre-registration begins June 3, 2019
- Sign up online by using Beanstack or in person at the Reference Desk. Be sure to collect your free gifts for registering.
2. Read and Review Books
- This year, read as much as you can! Each Book Review submitted June 24- August 9, 2019 acts as an entry to our Summer Reading Grand Prize Drawing and weekly prize drawings, for the chance to win one of three prize packs!
- E-books, audiobooks, book books…ALL are acceptable!
- Once the reading challenge starts on June 24th, you can start submitting your Book Review forms. You can submit reviews online by signing up with Beanstack or pick up forms at the Reference Desk.
3. Test your solar system knowledge!
- During the Summer Reading Challenge be sure to visit our solar system display in the Reference area! Complete the quiz featured on the display to earn extra entries into one of our weekly raffles!
