Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Keep track of your hours using the Adult Reading Log from June 4th- July 27th. Every 2 hours completed is an entry into a grand prize. Adult Summer Reading Challenge Guidelines:
 Each two hours read equals an entry into a grand prize of their choosing. Patrons may read whatever they wish.
 Patrons may submit as many reading logs as they’d like.
 The initial 2 hour entry turned in gets a patron a free hardcover book of their choosing to take home. We will be using the honor system.
 Any adult program attended during SRC gives patrons another entry into a grand prize. We will be using the honor system.
