2018 Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Are you ready to take the challenge and rock & read? 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 #SRLReads18 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 with “rock” in the title or reading a banned book. Back again for 2018 you can complete challenges such as attending programs, visiting a different branch, 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.

Libraries ROCK!
Once you complete 3 challenges, bring the form back to your local branch. You’ll receive a tote bag. You’ll also be entered into an end-of-summer drawing for prizes including a Bluetooth speaker, 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:
