Summer Reading Program — Adventure Begins at Your Library!

Get ready for some summer reading! Our Summer Reading Program “Adventure Begins at Your Library” starts Saturday, June 1, and will end Wednesday, July 31. Beginning June 1, you can sign up online via Beanstack or visit your local library and receive a physical reading log. Simply read books and track your reading to earn prizes!

The reading goals for each age group are:
Kids (0-9) = 300 pages
Teens (10-17) = 600 pages
Adults (18+) = 1,000 pages

Ebooks and Audiobooks
In addition to physical books, eBooks and audiobooks also count toward your reading goal. For young children, books read to them will also count. Check out Hoopla Digital and OverDrive for fascinating eBooks and audiobooks.

Summer Programs
Spend quality family time in the library during our Storytimes and Family Programs. Children and teens who attend our events will also be entered into our weekly pizza drawing! For a full list of our events, click here.

Summer Meals
This summer, children ages 18 and under can pick up seven bagged shelf-stable meals for the week, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., each Monday, from June 3 through August 5, at the Adams County Public Libraries. Parents are also eligible to pick up meals for their children. If you are not a parent but are a babysitter, grandparent, or caregiver, you are still eligible to pick up meals for children. However, parents must first sign an authorization form allowing others to pick up meals for their children. Thanks to the Children’s Hunger Alliance for providing the meals to the Adams County communities.
