2019 Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Are you ready to blast off into the summer reading challenge? Beginning June 1 and ending July 31, adults can participate in the Summer Reading Program in more ways than ever before. Plus, you can win great prizes. Use the hashtag #SRLReads19 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 “space” in the title or reading a graphic novel. Back again for 2019 you can complete challenges such as attending programs, participating in the Rock-A-Thon and even checking out a cake pan! 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 tote bag. You’ll also be entered into an end-of-summer drawing for prizes including a moon lamp, bento lunch box, book light, USB car charger or Amazon gift card.

For each additional challenge you complete, you will earn an additional entry into the end-of-summer drawing. Remember, if you can’t find titles at your Scenic Regional Library branch, you can request it from another branch or another library using our catalog.
