Summer Reading Starts June 3

Summer ReadingSummer Reading is June 3 through July 27 at all Adams County Public Libraries. Stop by your local library to sign up, read books, and earn prizes. The library offers reading goals, weekly activities, and a chance to earn prizes for kids, teens, and adults. Kids under 10 years old can sign up to read 30 books during the summer to earn prizes. The reading goal for teens is 40 books, and the reading goal for adults is 3 books. We encourage you to meet and beat your reading goal, and let us know your favorite reads this summer! One reader in each age group will be randomly selected to win a grand prize drawing at each library. This year’s grand prizes include Kindle Fire tablets, Bluetooth speakers, video cameras, King’s Island tickets for a family, and more. Thank you to the generous sponsors who help support Summer Reading, including many local businesses, the Friends of the Library, and the Peebles Magazine Club.
