Summer Reading Program for Adults

Don't let the kids have all the fun!  Reading Rocks for adults too!  Pick up a challenge bingo sheet and start marking off squares! Complete a row of reading activities to earn a chance to win a gift basket full of books, crafts, gift cards, and more! The more rows you complete, the more chances you have to win.  Two winning entries will be drawn in August.  You can pick up and drop off of a challenge sheet anytime during library open hours. 

Plus, join us for Rockin' adult programming throughout the summer months.  All programs are free and open to the public. To learn more call 706-769-3950.
