Adult Summer Reading Challenge is Here!

The Adult Summer Reading Club runs from Tuesday, July 3 to Tuesday, August 21. Sign up for our summer reading program for adults and read your way through the summer! Challenge yourself with new formats, new topics and new titles. 

Visit your library to sign up!

How it Works

Pick up a "reading record" at your branch (or download one here). For each of the challenges you complete, write the title and author of the book you read. For the TV and film challenges just write the title of the film and for the music challenge write the name of the artist and the album (you don't have to listen to the whole thing). When you complete a challenge, bring in one of your eight draw ballots and enter to win a prize!

Important Note

The goal of this year's Adult Summer Reading Challenge is for you to try new formats, find new authors and read books from around the world. If you don't love the book you have chosen for a particular challenge you can still mark it down even if you don't finish the whole thing. Or better yet, ask library staff for a recommendation of another title instead! You can also count listening to an audiobook for any of the reading challenges.
