Adult Summer Reading Challenge!

One of our favorite things about summer is having a little bit more time to read, whether it is packing a paperback in with the sunscreen, or enjoying the extra daylight to read on the deck after dinner.  We know you feel the same way!  We also know that while reading is always good summertime fun, reading to win prizes is even better!

Introducing our Summer Reading Challenge!  There are four buckets – Genre, Place, Read Bigger, and For Fun – with lots of book categories within each bucket. Read a book that fits as many categories as you can, mixing and matching categories as you please.  For every category your book includes, you will earn a raffle ticket to win one of three fabulous prizes!


Here are a few examples to give you some ideas:

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia = Fiction + Set In Mexico + Latinx author + Beautiful Cover = 4 categories = 4 raffle tickets

Weather by Jenny Offill = Climate Fiction + Recommended by a CPL Librarian + Under 200 Pages + Genre You Don’t Usually Read + One Word Title = 5 categories = 5 raffle tickets

Come into the library to pick up your game card, or print it out from the copy below.  You will have the chance to win up to 25 raffle tickets for the prize drawing.  PLUS, we will award three extra raffle tickets to the reader who covers the most categories in one book.  Will it be six? Seven? Ten? More??  We can’t wait to see what titles you read this summer!

Drop off your completed game cards at the Circulation Desk or email them to Jessica FitzHanso at by Friday August 27th.

Or, if you want to track your summer reading through Beanstack along with your kids, you can sign up HERE.

Happy Summer Reading!
