Adult Summer Reading Program

Reading Takes You Everywhere

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2018 Adult Summer Reading Program! We will post updated information about our 2019 program in May 2019. 

How It Works

  • Anyone 18+ years with a valid MRSPL card can participate. 
  • Sign up at the Circulation, Reference, or Youth Services Desk between June 1, 2018, and September 14, 2018.
  • Read at least 5 books and keep a log (provided at registration).
  • Write a short (just a sentence or two!) review of one of the books you read.
  • If you'd like, you can complete the Bonus Challenges for an additional drawing entry. Choose five activities, fill out the bonus challenges form (included with your log), and submit it with your reading log by September 14.
  • Return the log with book review and bonus challenge, if applicable, to a library service desk by Friday, September 14, 2018, to be entered in our Adult Summer Reading Program Raffle! Everyone who submits a log by the deadline will also receive a coupon for a free paperback from our used book sale!
