Adult Summer Reading 2024 Print
Active Image"The Adventure Begins at your Library" this summer, and you can win prizes just by reading.

Take a hike to the library through August 3 and help us celebrate adventure, when all adults will have several opportunities to win prizes.

Whether you prefer the traditional way of reading or the electronic method, or even listening to a book on audio, there is nothing quite like the feeling you get when reading a good story.

Adults can win prizes just by reading through August 3. All you have to do is be at least 18 years of age and fill out a Book Review slip at the library for each book you read (or listen to). The three prize drawings will be held June 22, July 13 and August 3. The more times you enter, the better your chance of winning.

Library users also may win prizes by participating in three trivia contests. Prizes will be awarded based on the most correct answers, also on June 22, July 13 and August 3. For more information and entry sheets, please visit the library.

All summer reading participants automatically will be entered in the grand prize drawing (held August 3) for a Blackstone Tabletop Griddle. Three runners-up prizes — $50 store gift cards to Kroger, Subway and Lowes — also will be awarded. 

Teen Summer Reading 2024 Print
Active ImageTeens have several opportunities to win prizes this summer at the library just for reading — or completing a few fun activities.

All young adults ages 13 to 17 can pick up a registration folder for the Teen Summer Reading Program at the library. The folder contains all the information necessary to participate, plus some coupons.

The summer reading program runs June 1 through July 31 with a Teen Review Raffle and Adventure Bingo. For every hour teens read, they can submit a Teen Review for their choice of two prizes. The more you read, the better your chances of winning. The first prize drawing takes place June 29.

Teens also may complete five boxes on the Be Better Bingo board and submit it by July 31 to be entered in a drawing for one of two $50 Visa gift cards.

Each teen who turns in either a Teen Review or a Be Better Bingo form gets a drawstring sports bag with a collapsible frisbee and waterproof phone pouch. (Limit one per person.)

Please contact Adult Services Coordinator Amanda Johnson at 937.783.3585 with any questions.

Gather a team of two to six friends or family members and join us from 6-7 p.m., Tuesday, June 25, for Superhero trivia.

No registration is required. Just show up ready to think — and maybe walk away with the $25 gift card that goes to the winning team.
