Summer Reading isn’t only for kids! Our Adult Summer Reading Program runs from June 17 through August 17. Registration is open as of June 1.
The theme for this year’s Adult Summer Reading Program is “Groundbreaking Reads.” Anyone age 18 and older can participate in this self-paced program. Participants may read or listen to any book, fiction or non-fiction, and submit a brief review. There will be a weekly door prize drawing from reviews submitted each week.
Explore not only groundbreaking books but underground movements such as prohibition and resistance movements. Dig into other underground phenomena and activities like composting, caving, and archaeology. Suggested bibliographies are available at the Circulation Desk.

The library is closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. Regular hours resume on Tuesday, May 28.
Did you know that Memorial Day originated in the late 1860s, in the years following the Civil War? It was first called Decoration Day, and did not become an official federal holiday until 1971. Click here to learn more about Memorial Day at History.com.
