Track your reading and enter to win prizes.

We have Summer Reading Club for kids, and Teen Summer Adventure for teens, but why should they have all the fun?! Starting July 2, we have the Adult Summer Reading Program.

Visit your local branch and pick up a reading record. Track your reading and drop off your finished record to be entered to win a $50 gift card! Here’s how it works:

  1. Read for 15 hours. Audiobooks count too! Each sun equals 20 minutes of reading. Fill in the suns as you read.
  2. Bring your completed log to the library by August 30 and enter for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Chapters Indigo. One entry per person.
