Kirby Library Initiates First Adult Summer Reading Program

At the Kirby Library, the summer reading program is no longer just for children and teens. This year marks the initiation of the first ever adult summer reading program for individuals age 18 and older! The theme is “Literary Elements”, combining science and literature.

How does it work? Starting the week of June 17, sign up at the registration desk and pick up some book review forms. Complete a brief book review for the books you read to be eligible for prizes. Book reviews will be displayed to share participants’ thoughts and opinions of the books read. Book reviews may be submitted beginning June 24 to receive the giveaway of the week. The last date for book reviews to be submitted is Saturday, August 9.

For adventurous readers who would like to expand their reading preferences, there is an optional tictac-toe reading challenge sheet which will be entered into an additional drawing for a prize. Quiz sheets will be available to those who want to test their literary and scientific knowledge to exercise the brain just for fun!

A variety of interesting programs are scheduled that include exploring some great apps to add to your device of choice to check out the stars, moon, and the planets, Eyewitness News Meterologist Dave Skutnik will talk about weather, self-defense class for women and teens, JepoTrivia game night, and a 5 senses nature walk on the M. S. Kirby Library nature trail.

A closing celebration is planned for Wednesday, August 13 for participants of the adult summer reading program. Prizes will be awarded and we’ll ask for your feedback on the inaugural adult summer reading program while enjoying some refreshments.
