2017 Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Are you ready to take the challenge and build a better world? This summer, adults can participate in the Summer Reading Program in more ways than ever before. Plus, you can win great prizes. Use the hashtag #SRLReads17 on Social Media to participate and connect with other patrons, too.
Stop by your local branch and pick up a challenge form to participate. The form lists multiple reading challenges such as reading a book of poetry or reading a book that takes place in Missouri. This year, we have added new challenges such as attending programs, writing book reviews, and even posting a photo of yourself reading! Check off the challenges as you complete them, and write down the name of the book, magazine, or event in the space provided.

Once you complete 3 challenges, bring the form back to your local branch. You’ll receive a coloring journal. You’ll also be entered into an end-of-summer drawing for prizes including a Kindle Fire, local restaurant gift cards and Amazon gift cards.

For each additional challenge you complete, you will earn an additional entry into the end-of-summer drawing. For help on finding your next challenge, check out our resources below:
