Adult Summer Reading Program
Starting on May 22nd, register online or at the library. If you register online, remember to stop by the library to pick up your registration gift while supplies last.
How Does it Work?
1. Read three books of your choice. Audiobooks count!
2. Attend a summer program at the library.
3. Submit your completion form with three books read and a program attended online or at the library.
4. Pick your completion prize at the reference desk! (Only one per patron while supplies last, but feel free to submit as many completions as you like!)
5. The Adult Summer Reading Program ends July 31st, so see how much you can read by then!
Every completion is an entry towards one of our grand prizes, so the more you submit, the better your chances!
Up your reading for a chance to win an "escape" with passes including Sky View Atlanta, Medieval Times, or Southern Estates Alpaca!
