Summer Reading for Adults
Don't let the kids have all the fun! The adult summer reading program is a chance to discover groundbreaking reads, connect with other readers, share about books you have read, and win prizes.
From June 10th through August 2nd, each Garfield County Library branch will be promoting the love of reading by presenting a special program for anyone age 18 and over. Sign up begins May 1, so register online now.
This summer we will continue our “Read Every Day” format and encourage everyone to read at least 20 minutes each day, five days a week. Stop by your local branch to pick up a reading log bookmark. Once a week when you turn in your bookmark showing that you have read at least 20 minutes for 5 days that week, you will be able to donate one cup of dog or cat food to a local shelter or receive a library book buck. Book bucks can be redeemed at your library to pay for book sale items, overdue fines, photocopies, faxes, ear buds and flash drives.
Every two weeks each branch will have a drawing for a $25 gift certificate with the winner’s name drawn from the bookmarks turned in during that two-week period. On August 5th, each branch will hold a drawing for a grand prize Kindle Fire. All adult bookmarks turned in to a branch over the summer will be included in its drawing.
Beyond reading and prizes, each library branch will offer a variety of exciting programming for adults. Programming will include concerts, genealogy workshops, and Reiki and massage therapy workshops. You can even learn how to plant a terrarium. Check with your local library or go to the summer reading homepage for a list of the summer reading programs available to you.
