This year’s Adult Summer Reading theme is Between the Covers and we have a selection of fun and diverse programming and contests for you to choose from, ensuring that the Library will be an enjoyable part of your summer!
If you enjoy reading, there are three reader’s contests to participate in. Simply read a book and fill out an entry form, and your name will be entered to win $25 in Chamber Bucks! We will have three drawings, each spanning two weeks: May 29-June 15, June 16-June 29, and June 30-July 20.
If you enjoy some detective work, there are three scavenger hunts, giving you the challenge of searching throughout the library and its collection. The scavenger hunts are for those looking for a challenge and the winner of each hunt will receive a whopping $50 in chamber bucks! The three hunts will run the following dates: “A Night Out” May 29-June 8, “Home and Garden” June 11-June22, and “Thriller Chiller” June 25-July 13.
For those of you who are creative, there is a poetry exhibition/contest of “Book Spine Poetry” for anyone 16 and up from June 4-July23rd. I’ve included an example of what we’ll be looking for. We’ll display the poems in the library and online, and the winner will receive $25 in chamber bucks!
Beginning on May 31, there is entertainment scheduled for every Thursday evening at the Library. Events include music from local musicians in our rose garden (should the weather be uncooperative we will move the event indoors) as well as a two-part series on backyard gardening about evening animal activity and evening gardening. A full list of events can be found on our calendar.
Stop by the Circulation Desk and pick up a bookmark that gives more information about all these activities. We hope you’ll find something that interests you, and are looking forward to seeing you this summer!
